Heat oven to 400°F. Combine all cookie ingredients in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed. Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls, 2 inches apart, onto ungreased cookie sheets. Flatten balls to 1/4 inch thick with bottom of buttered glass dipped in sugar. Bake 7-9 minutes or until edges are very lightly browned. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet; remove to cooling rack. Cool completely. Combine all glaze ingredients except almonds in small bowl with wire whisk. Decorate cooled cookies with glaze and sliced almonds as desired. Variations: Flavored: Substitute vanilla or mint flavoring for almond extract. Toppings: Drizzle unglazed cookies with melted chocolate or vanilla-flavored candy coating (almond bark). Decorate glazed cookies with chopped nuts, mini chocolate chips or decorator sugars. - If dough is too dry, stir in 1 to 2 tablespoons milk. - Glaze sets up quickly. Frost and decorate just a few cookies at a time.
