Pink sugar cookie almond icing
Preheat the oven to 350F then line a baking sheet with parchement pape and set aside.
Cream the butter, oil, sugar, and powdered sugar in a large mixing bowl or a stand mixer.
Add the egg, vanilla extract, and almond extract to the creamed butter mixture and mix until combined.
Add the flour, salt, cream of tartar and baking powder and mix until combined, using a large cookie scoop (¼ cup- 4 tbsp), scoop out 9 equally sized cookie balls, place on the prepared baking sheet then using your hand flatten to about ½ inch in thickness.
Bake for 9-10 minutes then cool on the baking sheet for 20 minutes before transferring to a wire rack fully before frosting. Don't worry if the cookies look underbaked, they will continue baking as they cool.

How to store these cookies?

- Make sure to use room temperature ingredients for this recipe– Room temperature ingredients are crucial for these cookies because that will affect how your cookies flatten out once you smash them!
- Don’t flatten your cookies too much- When you smash your cookies, you want them to be at about ⅓-1/2 inch flat, nothing less. This will keep them super soft and melt in your mouth in the center!
- Let your cookie cool fully before topping them with the frosting- Make sure that your cookies are fully cooled down before frosting or the frosting will melt and you will end up with a soupy mess and not so pretty cookies!
