Almond Cookie Recipe

This almond cookie recipe is great for tea parties, wedding receptions or just for fun.  I especially enjoy these cookies when I have the classroom moms over for coffee during the first weeks of school or when my book club meets on those rare early mornings.

Almond Cookies Recipe Ingredients

• 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
• 3/4 cup powdered sugar
• 1 cup unsalted sweet cream butter
• 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
• 1 cup finely ground almonds

Almond Cookie Directions

This is a two step process.  Make sure you allow at least 2 hours for chilling.

Slightly soften butter.  Place powdered sugar in a large mixing bowl.  Cream together butter and sugar.

Mix in vanilla and almonds.  Add flour slowly to mixture.  You may have to knead the dough by hand to incorporate the flour completely if you only have a hand mixer for the almond cookies recipe.  A large stand mixer should be able to mix the flour if you make use of the dough hook that most mixers come with.

Chill dough for at least 2 hours.

When ready to bake your almond cookies, preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Spray a cookie sheet lightly with cooking oil. 

Roll dough out to 1/4 inch thick, and cut into circles, moons, squares or whatever shape of almond cookie you prefer.  Place cookies on oiled baking sheet.

Bake almond cookies for approximately 15 minutes or until golden brown.  Remove from oven, dust with powdered sugar and transfer to wax paper to cool completely.
