Pink Sweeties (Pretty Pink Almond Cookies)

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

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
