almond sugar cookies

It's no secret that cookies are my favourite thing to bake at Christmas time
This recipe is from the Christmas Cookies 2014 magazine from Better Homes and Gardens US.

250g butter (1 cup)
1.5 cups granulated sugar
.5tsp baking powder
.5tsp slat
2 eggs
.25cup milk
1tsp vanilla extract
.5tsp almond extract
.5cup ground almonds
3 cups all purpose flour

* cream butter, sugar, baking powder and salt
* mix in eggs, milk, vanilla, almond
* mix in almonds and flour
* refrigerate about 2hrs, until chilled
* roll out and cut with 2.5" cutter
* bake 7-10min at 180ºC/350ºF

* I used self-raising flour, because I ran out of plain flour
* the day was too hot to roll out the dough, so I formed logs and froze them
* I baked for 12min, but they were a bit soft, 14min is perfect for choc chip cookies, so I'll try that next time
* then I quickly iced with a glaze.
* the almond flavour is milk enough that the kids loved these biscuits (probably for the icing)
* I think I'll add these to the cook-again-list
