Mandel Kakor (Swedish Almond Butter Cookies)

1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup sugar
3 cups flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 ounces almond extract
3 tbsp heavy cream
1 egg, beaten
Swedish pearl sugar for decorating

Preheat the oven to 350 F. Combine the butter and the sugar in a large bowl. Using a mixer at medium-high speed, beat until light. Add the flour, baking powder, and the salt. Beat well. Add the almond extract and the heavy cream. Mix well. Turn the dough out and work it into a ball. Cut into four portions and shape each portion into a ball. Flatten each ball into a four inch circle. Refrigerate for 10 minutes. Place the dough rounds on a baking sheet. Brush the tops of the rounds with the beaten egg. Sprinkle the pearl sugar on top. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven. Decrease the oven temperature to 300 degrees. Cut each round into 10 slices. Then cut each slice in half (except the short ends). Return to the oven and bake 20 minutes for crispy cookies or 10 minutes for chewy cookies. Makes about 70 cookies.
