Red, White & Blue Cherry Almond Cookies
1-1/4 cups Pillsbury Best™ Blanched Almond Flour
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled slightly
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon almond extract (optional)
Red and Blue Food Coloring
Heat oven to 350℉.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Drain, rinse and leave maraschino cherries to dry on a paper towel.
Add vanilla extract and almond extract to melted butter.
Stir together almond flour, granulated sugar and salt in a medium bowl until combined. Add butter mixture and stir until a thick paste forms.
Roll dough into tablespoon-sized balls. Place 2 inches apart on baking sheet. Use your thumb to create an indentation in the middle of each cookie. It is normal for the cookies to crack a little at the edges when pressed down.
Add a maraschino cherry to each indentation.
Bake 14-15 minutes or until the bottom edges turn golden brown. Cool completely on pan.
Divide the vanilla frosting into thirds. Tint 1/3 blue, 1/3 red, and leave the remaining frosting white. Microwave for 10-15 seconds to thin. Pipe or drizzle frosting over cooled cookies.
