  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tsp almond extract
  • 4 cups flour
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • red food coloring

For the Glaze:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract
  • approx. 1 Tbsp milk (any kind will do)


  1. Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs one at a time and almond extract. Stir in dry ingredients. Add a few drops of red food coloring to the dough and swirl throughout.
