1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon almond extract
2 cups all-purpose flour

Preheat oven to 375°. Beat butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add egg and almond extract and beat until blended. Sift together flour, soda, salt, and nutmeg. Gradually add to creamed mixture and beat well. Stir in oatmeal. Shape dough into 1 1/4-inch balls. Place on ungreased cookie sheets and make a hollow in each ball. Bake for about 12 minutes.
