Step 1: Preheat the Oven
Duh! For any baking recipe the first step is always to preheat the oven. In this case it's to 375 degrees.
Step 2: Mix up the "wet" ingredients
Mix the sugar, butter, vanilla, almond, and egg until creamy
Step 3: Mix the "dry" ingredients
Mix the flour, powder, and salt together
Step 4: Combine
Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and continue to beat until well blended.
Step 5: Choose your baking method
Choose whether you want to make almond bars or cookies. Either spread the dough onto a greased cookie sheet for bars or place teaspoon full amounts of dough onto the cookie sheet to make individual cookies.
Step 6: Bake
Bake 'em up! cook 7-9 minutes until the edges are golden brown.
Step 7: Serve
If you are making bars, cut the cookie sheet into strips. Let cool and serve!
Step 8: Frost
If you'd like, you can frost the cookies. Simply mix some powdered sugar and milk together until the frosting is the right thickness.
