TARO BRAND POI PANCAKE MIX ALMOND COOKIES
Taro Brand Poi Pancake mixes make the perfect small batch of cookies for those moments when you want cookies but don’t want to spend all day baking. These classic almond cookies are simple and easy to make.
1 package Taro Brand Poi Pancake Mix
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 egg, beaten
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1/3 cups shortening (Crisco) + 1 tablespoon
Beat egg and almond extract with a fork. Cream sugar and shortening well, & add egg until well blended. Add Taro Brand Poi pancake mix gradually.
Roll into balls or use a cookie scoop and place dough on cookie sheet about 1 inch apart. Press thumb gently into the center of the ball and garnish each cookie with a red dot using a chopstick dipped in red food coloring or almond. If you want the cookies to have a yellowish glaze, use leftover egg wash and gently brush outside edges of dough with egg wash.
