Prize-Winning Recipe 2008! A dusting of sweet powdered sugar hides a delicately spiced, buttery sugar cookie.
Updated May 5, 2008

Ingredients

  • 1 pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker™ sugar cookie mix
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped toasted almonds
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 cup powdered sugar

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, stir together cookie mix, almonds, allspice, cardamom and cinnamon. Stir in butter, vanilla and almond extract until soft dough forms.
  • 2
    Shape level tablespoonfuls of dough into balls. On ungreased cookie sheets, place balls 2 inches apart.
  • 3
    Bake 12 to 14 minutes or until set. Cool 5 minutes; remove from cookie sheets to cooling rack.
  • 4
    Place powdered sugar in shallow bowl. Gently roll warm cookies in powdered sugar to coat all sides; place on cooling rack. Cool completely, about 15 minutes. Roll in sugar again.

  • To ensure even baking, bake one sheet of cookies at a time, placing the cookie sheet on the middle rack of the oven.
  • To toast nuts, heat oven to 350°F. Spread nuts in ungreased shallow pan. Bake uncovered 6 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until light brown.
