This recipe is so easy and delicious. Hope you enjoy it as much as my family does! I put a little orange and black food coloring in the frosting to make it pretty for the holiday.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Beat butter and sugar until fluffy. Add egg and almond extract. Beat well. Mix flour, baking powder and salt in a small bowl and add to butter/egg mixture. Divide dough into fourths. Form each into a 12 inch roll. Place two rolls 4 to 5 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten to about 3 inches wide. Repeat with remaining rolls. Brush flattened rolls with milk and sprinkle with almonds. Bake at 325 for 12 to 14 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. While cookies are still warm, cut crosswise at a diagonal into 1 inch strips. Cool and drizzle with almond icing (recipe below).
Stir together 1 cup powdered sugar, 1/4 teaspoon almond extract and enough milk (3 to 4 teaspoons) to make icing drizzling consistancy.
