Total Time 22 minutes
Servings 18 cookies


  • 1 cup butter softened
  • cup granulated sugar + more for sprinkling
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp almond extract


  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees and line your baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Combine the butter and sugar in the mixing bowl and beat until well combined.
  • Add flour and extract and mix until the dough pulls together. If you are using a hand mixer instead of a stand mixer with a paddle attachment, you may need to use your hands to pull the dough together. It should be smooth and not crumbly.
  • Portion out 1″ balls of dough and roll them between your hands to smooth and shape.
  • Place the dough on the prepared baking sheet. Press down on top of each ball with the bottom of a glass to flatten the cookies to about 1/2″ thick.
  • Sprinkle the unbaked cookies with additional granulated sugar and bake for 14-16 minutes or until golden on the bottom.
  • Let cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to continue cooling.
