How to Make Heart Shaped Almond Cookies !

  1. Pre heat oven to 375 degrees F
    Sift flour with baking powder into large bowl.
    Add shortening, sugar, almond and vanilla extracts and salt and beaten egg.
  2. Knead the mixture until thoroughly combined.
    Turn dough onto unfloured surface. Lightly pat into 1/4" thickness with a floured 2 1/2 " heart shaped cookie cutter, cut out cookies.
  3. Place 2" apart on ungreased cookie sheet.
    GLAZE: Combine the egg yolk and 1 tablespoon of water. Brush on top of each cookie and place an almond in center of each.
