Cocoa Almond Cut-out Cookies
Butter or margarine
Finely chopped almonds
In large mixer bowl, beat butter, sweetened condensed milk, eggs, vanilla and almond extract until well blended. Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder and baking soda; gradually add to butter mixture, beating until well blended. Stir in almonds. Divide dough into 4 equal parts. Wrap each in plastic wrap; flatten into disk. Chill until firm enough to roll, about 2 hours.
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Remove one part of dough at a time from refrigerator. Roll to about 1/8 inch thickness on floured surface. Cut into desired shapes.
Place on lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake 6 to 8 minutes or until set. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. Drizzle chocolate glaze over top, if desired.
