1 cup butter, softened (2 sticks of real butter not margarine)
1 cup sugar
1 egg, slightly beaten
2 3/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp. soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. almond extract
Mix butter and sugar until well blended. Add egg and extract. Mix well. Add flour, soda and salt until well blended. Make a one inch ball and roll in sugar. flatten with a glass and bake at 350 for 9 minutes in my oven. If you want to make them look like Sand Dollars add toasted slivered almonds in a sand dollar shape (5 slivers).
I am using this for my daughter’s wedding hotel guests as a treat in their rooms! Since it’s a beach wedding they are being done as Sand Dollar Cookies. Copied the idea from my best friend in Louisiana!
