1 cup butter or margarine
2 1/4 cups flour
1 cup sugar or brown sugar OR 1/2 cup each
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 tsp salt
1 egg
1 1/2 tsp. almond extract

Cream butter, sugar and egg together, with almond extract. Sift dry
ingredients together. Add to creamed mixture. shape into balls and
place on ungreased cookie sheet with ample space to allow for

Place an almond on each ball, and bake at 375 for 13 to 15 minutes.
Makes 3 to 5 dozen cookies. ( I usually get two to three dozen, but
then, I never get as much as the recipe says it will make)

That sounds so yummy! We love almond-y stuff, so I'll have to try those out.
