Almond Cookies

I do love these cookies. They are delicate and cake- like and the perfect finish for almost any meal. I always make them as part of my holiday cookie baking. The whole almonds  toast nicely as the cookies bake. I also like that they are easy to make. If you haven’t tried them before you might want to. I think you’ll like them as much as I do.

 

 

 

 Almond Cookies

¾ c. sugar
¾ c. softened butter
1 egg
2 T. water
1 t. baking powder
1 t. almond extract
¼ t. salt
2 ½ c. flour
whole almonds, about 1/3 c.

Combine all ingredients except flour and nuts and beat until smooth. Stir in flour. Shape dough into 1-inch balls and place 2” apart on lightly greased baking sheet. Dip bottom of buttered glass in sugar and use it to flatten cookies a little. Press an almond into the center of each. Bake in a 350-degree oven for 8-12 minutes. Cookies should be firm to the touch, but not brown. Makes 3-4 dozen.
