Recipe Ingredients for Melting Moments

1 cup ICBINB! Light (Soft)
2 cups flour
2 tbsp powdered sugar
1/2 tsp milk
1 cup Sugars, Powdered
2 tbsp ICBINB! Light (Soft)
1/2 tsp almond extract
1 tsp maraschino cherry juice

Recipe Directions for Melting Moments

  1. Cookie:

  2. 1 cup softened butter

  3. 2 cups flour

  4. 2 Tbsp powdered sugar

  5. 1/2 tsp milk

  6. Combine all ingredients except 1 cup flour in mixing bowl and cream thoroughly. Add remaining flour a little at a time. Chill dough for half hour. Line baking sheet with foil. Roll dough thin between wax paper (3/16 of an inch). Cut out small round cookies with doughnut hole center (1 inch). They can be bigger but these cookies are very delicate and it can be hard to handle the larger ones. Place cookies about inch apart on lined cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees, 12-15 minutes or until lightly golden. Carefully remove foil with cookies from baking sheet and set on cooling rack. Cool for 20 minutes.

  7. Icing:

  8. 1 cup powered sugar

  9. 2 Tbsp soft butter

  10. 1/2 tsp almond extract

  11. few tsp maraschino cherry juice

  12. Mix together powdered sugar, butter and almond extract. Add juice from maraschino cherries and mix until smooth and creamy. Dab about 3/4 tsp icing on flat side of cookie. Gently twist another cookie into place to make a little sandwich.

  13. Makes about 2 - 3 dozen cookies.

  14. I found another variation on these cookies on the web. It is basically the same except you don't roll out the dough. You make balls and just flatten them. (sounds easier to me!)

  15. I made this recipe on here for 6 servings, which would be 9 cookies per person...probably not realistic, but come on! LOL!
