ingredients

directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F & grease two baking sheets.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, sugar & spices, then add melted butter & stir well.
  • In another bowl, mix together 3 1/3 cups of flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt & almonds.
  • Add half of this flour mixture to egg mixture, stirring well with a wooden spoon.
  • Add 2nd half of flour mixture & stir until a smooth dough forms, adding a tablespoon or two of flour if the dough seems too tacky. With floured hands, you should be able to form a small piece of dough into a ball.
  • Form half of the dough into a large log & place it on one of the greased baking sheets, then flatten the log until it is 5-6 inches wide & 10 inches long. Do the same with the 2nd half of the dough, using the second baking sheet.
  • Bake the logs for 35 minutes, until logs are firm but give slightly when pressed with a finger.
  • Remove baking sheets from the oven & reduce oven temperature to 325 degrees F.
  • While logs are still warm, use a large spatula to carefully transfer them to a cutting board, & cut them crosswise on a slight diagonal, into 1/2-inch-thick slices.
  • Lay the cookies on their sides on the baking sheets & bake them 15 minutes more.
  • Remove from the oven & let cookies cool on a wire rack.
  • Store in an airtight container, up to 2 weeks.

    I love the flavor of the spice mix and the texture. I had a problem with the slicing as each almond that I encountered would cause the cookie to shatter instead of slice. I had someone come by and left the remaining unsliced cookie loaf on the cutting board for about 4 hrs. When I went back to it it was much better to cut when fully cool. I would make this recipe again but not with whole almonds, I think sliced almonds would be nicer but this is only my preference. I also need to say that I made a 12 amount but there wasn't enough dough to make 12 cookies anywhere near the 5-6 inch wide started in the recipe, mine were about 3-3 1/2 inches wide which is perfectly fine with me but if you want cookies of that size plan on getting fewer of them.
