Baking two weeks in a row! I'm setting some kind of a record here. This week's cookie is Little Sugar Cakes - light, almond-flavoured sugar cookies popular in Iceland.
The dough is often tinted with food colouring to produce pastel-shaded cookies but I opted to keep it simple and leave the dough as it was since I'm not a big fan of food colouring. I did decorate them with some sugar crystals and rainbow sprinkles so they wouldn't look so plain.
This was a really easy dough to prepare in the stand mixer and then roll out between sheets of waxed paper. It's always fun to get a chance to use cookie cutters and this time I decided to make teapots. I misjudged and ended up rolling the dough thicker than the recommended 1/8", more like 1/4" so the cookies took a bit longer to bake but they were still nice and crisp with a subtle almond flavour. I would definitely make this recipe again.
