Buttery Almond Sugar Cookies — buttery soft almond flavored sugar cookies rolled in almond flakes. It's the perfect cookie!
Sugar cookies are always great around the holidays or any time of year in my opinion. These Buttery Almond Sugar Cookies are perfect for a Christmas cookies exchange or a spring tea party. They are buttery and nutty with a lovely taste of almond in every bite; similar to a Good Humor toasted almond bar.

I love the taste and smell of almonds in desserts. It’s especially nice paired with cherries. If you dig that combination too, try my Cherry Coulis Fruit Sauce or Cherry Chocolate Chunk No-Churn Ice Cream. You may also like my Funfetti White Cake Cupcakes with Almond Cream Cheese Buttercream.
Buttery almond sugar cookies ingredients
1 ½ tablespoon cookie scoop
To make these delicious cookies, start by creaming the butter and sugar together in a mixing bowl until fluffy. Follow by beating in the egg and almond extract.
After whisking the flour, salt, and baking soda together, beat it into the creamed butter.
Using a cookie scoop, shape mounds of the buttery cookie dough into balls. Roll the dough balls into the sliced almonds.
Place the dough onto a cookie sheet and bake for 11 minutes at 350°. Don't overtake the cookies. They should be slightly golden around the edges.
These almond sugar cookies are amazing with vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of Brown Sugar Caramel Sauce.
