Cookies: Mix first 4 ingredients. Roll out to 1/4 inch thickness and cut with a biscuit cutter (or your favorite cutter). Bake 400-425 for 8 minutes. When cool, ice with almond icing. Makes approximately 30 to 34 servings
Icing: Mix last 4 ingredients, beat thoroughly and spread lightly on cookies. If you don't want to ice cookies be sure to smear on beaten eggs to make it look shiney. Sprinkle with sugar. If you don't like almond extract use vanilla, pepperment etc - your choice.
