ALMOND COOKIES

My mother-in-law introduced me to these Almond Cookies which are a recipe from her good friend.

When I think Almond cookie recipe, I have to admit I am not immediately jumping for joy but these suckers proved me wrong.

They melt in your mouth. They are supposed to be smaller and thicker almost like a thick Checker but this batch was a bit larger.

They’re kind of almond shortbread cookie with a sweet almond glaze. They are addicting. You know I love almond anything like these Almond Roca Bars.

The secret to these Almond Cookies is to follow the instructions exactly (adding the flour 2 tablespoons at a time).

WHY ISN’T THERE AN EGG IN THE RECIPE?

As with most shortbread recipes, an egg is not part of the ingredients.

  2. Roll into small balls and flatten slightly. They should look like a thick checker. Cook for 7 minutes (they will not look done) at 400 degrees on a parchment lined pan. Cool cookies until they are just warm and place sliced almonds on top of each cookie.

  3. For the glaze: Combine powdered sugar, almond extract, and water. Drizzle a spoonful of glaze on top of the almonds and cookie.
