How to Make Almond Sugar Cookies with Cream Cheese Frosting

Step-by-Step

  1. In a medium bowl whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. Gradually add to creamed mixture in bowl, beating on low until mixed. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill at least 1 hour.
  2. To make frosting, with an electric mixture, beat cream cheese on high 1 minute. Add extract and powdered sugar, beating on low. Add milk gradually, beating, until thick but easy to spread. Add food coloring and mix. Chill until dough is chilled.
