No Hurry Almond Pinkies~
Take out the butter about an hour before and preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a mixing bowl ..... Do you have a big old mixing bowl? Don't forget Jazz'e Junque has a nice selection of large & small vintage and Pyrex bowls.
Mix: 2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup butter
1/3 cup whipping cream
1 tablespoon almond extract
4 drop of red food coloring
Beat with hand mixer on low for 3 minutes scraping around the bowl with a spoon~
Divide dough into 3 parts, wrap in wax paper and refrigerate a few hours till dough is firm.
Roll out on clean floured surface. They should be about 1/8" thick. Get you favorite rounded type cookie cutter for shaping. (Jazz'e Junque has bins of cookie cutters)
Place cookies on ungreased cookie sheet about an inch apart. Bake 6 to 9 minutes.
These are good just like this. You can buy a can of white frosting and frost the cooled cookie and place an almond sliver on top. YUM!
Stop in at 3419 N Lincoln Ave.

I went to lunch yesterday with my hubby. We went Downtown to one of our favorite places. "Miller's Pub".
We love the Greek Egg Lemon soup and they had it yesterday. It is a tasty cream soup with a wonderful lemon taste with bits of rice.
"Millers Pub" is open seven days a week, 11am to 1am. Their bar is open until 4am.
The service was good. the waitress was always checking on us. It was a pleasant Chicago restaurant lunch. They had the tv's on. Playing the 1st Chicago Cubs baseball game in Chicago. They'd hit a run and a bell would ding.... GO CUBS!
It's a bit dark in there. It has paintings and pictures of famous people that have been in "Millers" throughout the years. Also a few deer heads hanging here and there. And some"Riverview" memorabilia hanging near the washrooms.
I was a little surprised when I ask the waitress: "Are all the cooks Greek?" I was told they were Greek, Black American and Mexican.
The omelette's are good. The sandwiches are also. The hot beef sandwiches are tasty. I'm a little sad tho. They no longer serve rice pudding. BOO HOO~
If in town stop in for lunch or dinner.
I rate "Miller's Pub" 3 Chef cookie jars~
