Almond Cookies

READY IN: 58mins
Recipe by Canadian_in_the_Bay

More Italian goodies. Passive cook time is per cookie sheet. This makes a massive batch since they are normally made for weddings and other large events so you may want to make half a batch at a time as I do.

These are a lovely almond cookie that would make up nicely for holiday trays or cookie exchanges. I followed your directions about halving the recipe. Also, I opted not to include an almond only because of family's preference. (not mine). I used 3 cups of flour after reading the other reviews about having to add a bit more. Perfect!! Lovely, Lovely taste. Made for Adopt-a-Tag, Sept. 08

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and lightly grease cookie sheets (I use canola oil to do this).
  2. Mix eggs, sugar, oil, orange juice, and almond extract in a bowl.
  3. Mix ground almonds, baking powder, and flour in a separate bowl and add to liquid ingredients.
  4. Stir until blended.
  5. Form into measuring teaspoon size balls.
  6. Roll balls in icing sugar.
  7. The dough is pretty sticky so you may want to grease your hands with a bit of oil to make your life easier.
  8. Press one whole almond into middle of each cookie.
  9. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes.
  10. Cool on racks.
