5 cups flour
2 cups Domino's powdered sugar
2 TBSP + 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 cup shortening (melted)
1 TBSP almond extract
1 1/2 tsp. lemon extract
Glaze: 1/2 cup warm milk; 1 tsp. almond extract; 1 tsp. vanilla; 1 - 1lb. box
Domino's powdered sugar; colored sprinkles.
In a mixer add eggs--beat 5 minutes on high speed until foamy--set aside. In
a large bowl add flour, 2 cups powdered sugar, and baking soda--stir until
mixed. Add melted shortening, almond extract, and lemon extract to the flour
mixture--stir until mixed. Add beaten eggs to the dough mixture--stir into a
stiff dough. Roll dough into 1" dough balls. Place dough balls on to
ungreased cookie sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes (the tops
of the cookies will not be browned, but the bottoms should be browned
slightly). Remove cookies from cookie sheets and GLAZE IMMEDIATELY.
Glaze: in a bowl add milk, almond extract and vanilla--stir. Add 1lb. powdered
sugar--beat with a whisk until mixed and smooth. Dip hot cookies entirely into
the glaze mixture using a slotted spoon--place glazed cookies on wire racks
with paper towels underneath so they can drain, then sprinkle cookies with
colored sprinkles. Let the cookies dry for 24 hours before storing them.
