  • 1 pinch salt
  • ¼ tsp Cream of Tartar
  • 1 tsp baking soda


  • ½ cup butter softened
  • ¼ cup Plain Yogurt I use Greek yogurt
  • ½ tsp Almond extract
  • 2½ - 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp heavy cream or milk
  • red food coloring



  • Preheat oven to 375°
  • Cream Crisco and sugar until fluffy.

  • Bake at 375° for 12-15 minutes until lightly golden in color.
  • Remove cookies from the oven and place on cooling racks.
  • Frost tops of cookies while slightly warm, and the frosting will melt slightly and give it a smooth look.
  • Chill cookies in the freezer and serve cold.
