Why I Love This Recipe

Made originally with rice flour, these dainty, tender cookies can be topped with blanched or skin-on almonds.

Ingredients You'll Need

3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
2 Tbs. water
1 tsp. almond extract
1 egg
2-1/2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup whole almonds


Heat oven to 350.

In large bowl, beat sugar, butter, water, almond extract and egg until well blended.

Lightly spoon flour into measuring cup; level

off. Stir in flour, baking powder and salt; mix well.

Shape into 1" balls.

Place 2" apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Flatten balls slightly with bottom of glass dipped in sugar; press whole almond firmly in center of each cookie.

Bake 7-10 minutes or until firm to the touch but not brown.

DO NOT OVERBAKE. Immediately remove from cookie sheets. 5 dozen cookies.
