Rainbow Sugar Balls Butter Cookies

I decided to make again some butter cookies with almond extract,sugar balls sprinkles and butter, finally i prepared them yesterday for our snacks,these cookies tastes absolutely divine, the aroma while they baked was heavenly, i simply tried adding some rainbow sugar balls sprinkles which i usually used to sprinkle over a chocolate ganache cake or over a butter cream cake,the sweet crunch of these cookies tastes absolutely incredible with a soft chewy center was just too good when served along with a cardamom flavoured hot tea for an evening snacks. These cookies are quite attractive and definitely addictive, i already prepared twice and everytime they gets vanished super quickly,we just loved it..Check out Champa,Susan,Preeti & Veena wat they baked for our 4th day of Bake-A-Thon..



1cup All purpose flour
2tbsp Almond powder
1/2cup Powdered sugar
1/2cup Butter
1tsp Almond extract
1/2cup Rainbow sugar balls
Milk (as per need)

Preheat the oven to 350F..Mix together the sugar,almond powder,flour and salt in a large bowl,add the butter and almond extract,mix everything well,use the milk as per need to form a soft dough,now add the sugar balls (keep aside some sugar balls for topping) to the dough and knead gently for few seconds, make small balls from the soft dough, flatten them as small disc,drop gently over the sugar balls,give a press..Now place them over a baking sheet lined over a baking tray..

Bake them for 12-15minutes until the edges turns golden brown..let them cool completely and enjoy with a cup of tea..
