Pink Sweeties (Pretty Pink Almond Cookies)

READY IN: 1hr 14mins
Recipe by Belinda in Austin

These pretty, pink and white swirled, iced almond cookies came from the Woodbine Cottage in Granbury, TX (via my friend, Victoria!). They have a nice almond flavor, they keep well, and they look so pretty! I think they'd be nice for a baby shower, or for Valentine's Day, because of their pink color. (Note: I find this dough to be rather stiff, and recommend using a heavy-duty mixer.)

I almost forgot to review this. I made these with the 4-H girls. We had so much fun making these and the turned out just beautiful. They didn't last long. They had a great taste. It will be a cookie recipe that I will make again. Thanks for the recipe. Made for Think Pink Oct 09
