How To Make spiced nut cookies

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. In the bowl of your stand mixer, combine sugar cookie mix, crushed nuts, and spices. Add butter, almond flavoring, and vanilla. Scoop about a teaspoon of cookie batter and flatten onto cookie sheets. You should get about 2 dozen cookies. Bake for about 8 - 10 minutes or until edges are just slightly golden. Let cookies sit for a few minutes on cookie sheet before transferring them to a wire rack. (They will be very soft and will tear apart if you don't let them rest first). Once slightly cool, roll each cookie in confectioner's sugar and enjoy!
