Preheat the oven to 350°F. Either grease baking sheets or lay out some parchment paper. Set aside.
Beat together the eggs, oil, granulated sugar, and salt in a large mixing bowl until smooth. Stir in the milk, almond extract, baking powder, and enough flour so that the dough becomes stiff.
Knead the dough either by hand or with a dough hook in a mixer until smooth. Pinch off about 1 tablespoon worth of dough for each cookie; roll into a rope and then twist into a pretzel shape, simple knot, or the letters of the name of your significant other.
Place cookies on the prepared baking sheet.
Bake until lightly browned, about 10 minutes.
Transfer the cookies on to a wire rack to cool.
If you're making them with frosting, go ahead and whisk the cream and almond extract together in a small mixing bowl. Beat in the confectioners' sugar bit by bit until it is smooth and of your desired consistency.
Drizzle over the cooled cookies.
Either way, store in an airtight container. These cookies keep beautifully when frozen.
