Almond Cookies

READY IN: 30mins




  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Blend together butter and sugars for a few minutes, until thoroughly combined.
  • Beat eggs separately, then stream into the bowl while running the mixer on low. Continue blending and add almond extract until combined.
  • Add one cup of flour to the bowl while blending, then add baking powder, then gradually add remaining flour until fully combined. Blend in almonds until distributed evenly.
  • Using a tablespoon or small cookie scoop, place dough on ungreased cookie sheets about three inches apart to prevent cookies from bleeding together. Only bake one rack of cookies at a time to ensure even baking.
  • Bake 10-12 minutes or until browned around the edges. Remove baking sheets from oven and allow to rest for a few minutes before removing to racks to cool. Remove cookies carefully, since the high butter content means they'll still be soft until they cool completely.
  • Repeat baking remaining cookies, ensuring that baking sheets are only on one rack.
