Almond Cookies

Almond Cookies created by Late Night Gourmet

This one falls under the "I ate it at, and then tried to duplicate it" motivation for cooking. Almond cookies are available at Chinese restaurants throughout the US...they're essentially sugar cookies with almond in them. I've seen some recipes that use vanilla extract but I can't imagine making these without almond extract. Besides, I use vanilla extract all the time, but when else am I ever going to use my almond extract?

ingredients

directions

  • 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.

    In my opinion I would use less sugar. Instead of 1 cup of both brown sugar and granulated sugar I would use only one to make it less sugary. Also, I would use I cup of whole wheat flour and 1 1/4cup of all purpose flour to make it healthier and increase the content of fiber.
