Ingredients

  • 1 pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker™ sugar cookie mix
  • 1/3 cup Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seeds
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 1 package (3 oz) cream cheese, softened
  • 2 teaspoons almond extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds, if desired
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 3 to 4 teaspoons water

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, stir cookie mix, flour, poppy seeds, butter, cream cheese, 1 teaspoon of the almond extract and egg until soft dough forms.
  • 2
    Roll dough into 1 1/4-inch balls; place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Press balls slightly to flatten. If desired, top each flatten ball with 5 sliced almonds arranged to form a star.
  • 3
    Bake 9 to 11 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Cool 3 minutes; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack.
  • 4
    In small bowl, mix powdered sugar, remaining 1 teaspoon almond extract and enough water to give the glaze a nice spreading consistency. Spread glaze over warm cookies. Store tightly covered in a single layer at room temperature.

  • For even baking, make sure cookies are of the same shape and size.
  • You can store these cookies tightly wrapped in the freezer for up to two months.
