Apricot-Almond Sugar Cookies

I came up with this recipe to enter in the Pillsbury Recipe Contest. 
I didn't win but I now have a really great cookie recipe!
Mix 1 roll  Sugar Cookie Dough with 2 Tablespoons apricot preserves and 1/8 teaspoon almond extract. Spray cookie sheet with Pam, spoon 2 Tablespoons for each cookie on to cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until golden around edges.
 Let set 3-4 minutes on cookie sheet, remove and let cool completely. 
Mix 1/2 cup vanilla frosting with 1 tablespoon apricot preserves. 
Frost cookies, place 1 teaspoon apricot preserves in center of cookie, top with slivered almonds.

I will post this recipe to these blog parties:


  1. Yum! I bet these are delicious! I love the flavor combinations you used! And good for you for entering the contest!

  2. These sound really good. I'll be trying to make these before a road trip next week.

  3. I'd like to invite you to join me at the Clever Chicks Blog Hop this week!

    I hope to see you there!
