12 Cookies of Christmas: Day 8

These cookies were a hit at family dinner and a week later, people were still talking about them!  I love almond flavoring and these cookies are perfect for curling up with a mug of hot tea and a Christmas movie.

Almond Oatmeal Cookies

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup shortening
3/4 cup sugar
2 tsp almond extract
1 3/4 cup flour

Add in almond extract
Slowly add in flour and oats
Drop by the tablespoon on to baking sheet lined with parchment paper
Gently flatten the the back of a spoon
