Ingredients You'll Need

2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
3 to 4 tablespoons Original Almond Breeze® Almondmilk, divided
Sugar, decorator sugar or sprinkles
Frosting, if desired
4 cups powdered sugar
3/4 cup vegetable shortening

3 to 4 tablespoons Vanilla Almond Breeze® Almondmilk
1. Heat oven to 375°F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
2. In large bowl, beat 1 cup shortening, sugar, egg and vanilla with electric mixer on medium speed until creamy, scraping sides of bowl if necessary. Add flour, baking soda, baking powder and cream of tartar. Mix on low speed until well mixed. Add 2 tablespoons of the Almondmilk and beat until smooth.
3. Form into 1 1/4-inch balls, using rounded tablespoonfuls of dough. Place 2 inches apart on cookie sheets. Spray flat bottom of measuring cup or drinking glass with cooking spray; dip in sugar. Press each cookie flat, dipping into sugar every other time. If desired, lightly brush tops of cookies with remaining Almondmilk and sprinkle with colored decorator sugar or sprinkles, or leave plain and frost when cooled.
4. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until edges start to brown. Cool on cookie sheets 2 minutes. Remove to cooling racks.
