A touch of finely chopped almond adds flavor and texture to these star-shaped cookies.
Yield: 5 dozen cookies
(Total time will vary; cook or bake time is per batch.)
Success: When you don't fill up your cookie sheet, you end up with unevenly baked cookies. If you don't have enough cookie dough to fill a cookie sheet, use an upside-down cake pan instead.
Variation: Who can resist a star sandwich? Spread about 1 tablespoon of ready-to-spread frosting on a cookie; sandwich two cookies, bottoms together.
