  • 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract

Step 3Bake at 350 degrees until cookie edges are browned and cookie center is golden, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove sheets from oven; cool cookies on sheets 5 minutes, then gently remove using metal spatula. Place cookies on wax paper or wire rack to finish cooling.
