Step 1

Heat oven to 375°F. In large bowl, stir cookie mix, butter, egg, flour and 1 teaspoon almond extract until dough forms. Divide dough into 3 equal parts; place on ungreased cookie sheets. Press each into 12x3-inch rectangle.

Brush each rectangle with 1 teaspoon milk; sprinkle with 1/3 cup almonds. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Cool 1 minute; cut into 1-inch diagonal slices. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.

In small bowl, stir powdered sugar, 1/4 teaspoon almond extract and 5 to 6 teaspoons milk until desired consistency. Drizzle over cookies; sprinkle with 2 tablespoons almonds.

Toast the almond slices for a nuttier almond flavor. Toast nuts in shallow pan in 350ºF oven about 5 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown.
