Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, beat sugar, butter, milk, almond extract and egg with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Stir in remaining ingredients. Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.

    Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until almost no indentation remains when touched in center and surface is no longer shiny. Immediately remove from cookie sheet; place on cooling rack.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Try using 1 teaspoon vanilla instead of the almond extract.
  • tip 2
    To make all the cookies uniform in size, use a spring-handled ice-cream scoop to drop the dough onto the cookie sheet.
