Recipe by StevenandMaggie McClain
"My mother-in-law uses this recipe every holiday season to bake cookies with the kids. I'm not much of a sugar cookie person, but these taste wonderful and hold up to shaping very well. They don't get dry and hard like so many other recipes. When cookies are cool you can ice and decorate. Store in a tightly sealed container with waxed paper between layers at room temperature for up to 2 weeks or freeze for up to 3 months."

almond paste, broken into pieces
unsalted butter, chopped and softened

I like the flavor of these cookies more than other sugar cookie recipes I've tried. The dough right out of the refrigerator was hard to work with but it softened up pretty quick. I put the dough back into the refrigerator for awhile to firm it up again.
Excellent flavor with the almond paste. Chilled overnight and rolles out cold dough. Cookies still spread more than I liked. I plan to add 1/2 cup flour next time.
