Pink Sweeties (Pretty Pink Almond Cookies)

Pink Sweeties (Pretty Pink Almond Cookies) created by ddav0962

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.)

    These came out beautifully for me! They're disappearing fast too so I had to hurry and get some iced so that I could get a photo to post LOL. They taste wonderful! We love the almond flavor in and on these. A keeper recipe for sure, and did I mention they're very pretty too? Made for Think Pink Oct 09.

    I don't give this stars because I changed too much to judge the original taste :) To make it gluten free, I used a gluten free flour mix, and to make it fructose free, I used rice syrup instead of sugar - and only one cup, because otherwise they would have been totally soggy. This got so sticky it was absolutely impossible to swirl anything, so I decided to make a pink glaze! All in all I like them a lot, they taste delicious, and I'm sure that the "original" would be even better :) Made them for Think Pink tag game October 2009. Thanks for posting this!
