They are simple, I had all the ingredients and they just plain sounded good.
Almond Butter Cookies*I use almond meal/flour, it’s always a big mess when I chop my own almonds.
1 cup butter
½ cup sugar
1 cup finely chopped almonds (don’t remove skins)*
2 tsp. vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
Heat the oven to 350 (mod.). Cream butter and sugar together. Stir in almonds and vanilla. Measure flour by dipping method or by sifting. Blend in flour with pastry blender. Form in small (scant teaspoonfuls). Place on ungreased baking sheet. Flatten with bottom of a greased glass dipped in sugar. Bake 9 to 10 min., or until slightly browned. Makes about 6 doz. Cookies.
Rebecca had lots of fun helping me smash the cookies flat. The cookies themselves were (they are all gone now) very tasty and reminded me of shortbread. The only problem was they didn’t taste all that almondy. Next time I’ll use 1 tsp of vanilla and ½ tsp of almond flavoring and see how they taste. Otherwise it’s a good cookie and everybody liked them.
