Take a well rounded teaspoon of dough and divide in half. Roll each half to about a 5″ rope. Twist the ropes together, tapering at one end. At the other end, using a toothpick, make a hole for a string or ribbon later in order to hang it as an ornament.
Bake at 375 degrees for 9-11 minutes or until just set. Remove and cool completely
2 cups confectioners sugar
1/4 tsp almond extract
2 or more tbsps of milk or enough to make a paintable glaze.
“Paint” the cookies with the glaze and immediately drizzle with sparkling sugar. Let dry till glaze is set.
These freeze very well.
