One day, I was looking for a simple dessert to make. I found this almond cookies recipe. I thought it’s pretty simple, so I didn’t expect much. Wow, it was big hit!!! It’s always good to find a good recipe by accident – like finding treasure in a cave. If you love to cook, you will understand what I’m saying… hehe … So I hope when you try a recipe from my blog, you can get that same feeling. haha … anyway … Since we enjoyed eating this cookies, I wanted to share it with you. My husband and in-laws liked them. My mother-in-law especially liked them. I hope you can try this someday.
Yield: About 20 Almond Cookies
- 1 Cup All Purpose Flour
- 1½ Cups Confectioners’ Sugar (Plus Extra for Dusting)
- 1½ Cups Sliced Almonds (Plus Extra for Decorating)
- ½ Cup Unsalted Butter
- A little Milk
Preheat the oven to 350° F. In a bowl, combine 1 cup of flour, 1½ cups of confectioners’ sugar, and 1½ cups of sliced almonds. Mix well.
Mix ½ cup of softened butter in the flour and nut mixture. If your dough is too dry, you can add a little bit of milk.
Knead the dough.
Shape the dough into a ball.
Place the dough on a lightly floured surface. Roll it out to a thickness of about ? inch. Cut the dough with different cookie cutter shapes. Re-roll the dough as necessary.
Place the cookie rounds on baking sheets, leaving a little space between them. Bake the cookies for about 25 minutes, until they become golden brown. Leave the cookies on the baking sheet for 10 minutes, then transfer them to wire racks to cool. Dust thickly with sifted confectioners’ sugar before serving. Decorate with sliced almonds.
I baked these cookies for my mother-in-law on Mother’s day last year. Specially, I made big heart shape for her. hehe Maybe you can bake these yummy almond cookies for somebody you love?
