Almond & Apricot Cookies

These are a great little cookie and they take icing really well!

Cookie Ingredients

1 & 1/4 Cups Sugar
1 Cup Crisco
2 Eggs
1/4 Cup Corn Syrup
1 tbsp Vanilla
3 Cups Flour
3/4 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 Cup Apricot Preserves
1/2 Cup Slices Almonds

Add all of the ingredients into a stand mixer except for the almonds and apricots, mix until everything is well incorporated. Add the Almonds and Preserves and mix by hand so you don't break the almonds up. Spoon onto a GREASED baking sheet and bake 8-10 minutes at 350 until lightly golden.

1 tsp honey
1 tsp apricot preserves
1 tbsp hot water
2 cups powdered sugar

Mix all ingredients and decorate your cookies!

TIPS.. make sure you grease the cookie sheet because the preserves will make the cookies stick. The frosting can be thinned with more water and cookies can just be dipped if preferred. If you dont want your cookies to spread out as much when they cook, form the cookies into "balls" and refrigerate for 10-15 minutes before baking.
