Why I Love This Recipe

I ended up buying a lot of almond flour over the internet - and have found that using it in these shortbread cookies takes away the need for almond extract and giving the shortbread a little more "bite"

Ingredients You'll Need

1/4 lb unsalted butter
1 c sugar
1t vanilla extract
2 3/4 c flour
3/4 c almond flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 c finely chopped mac nuts


Cream butter and sugar until light yellow and fluffy, add vanilla

In another bowl, sift flours and salt on to parchment paper

Slowly beat flour into butter mixture

Add mac nuts and beat on low until dough just comes together

Dump out onto flour dusted surface and shape into a flat disk

Cover tightly with plastic wrap and chill for 30 minutes

Roll dough out into 1/2" thick and cut as desired - I stick with bars about 1"x2"

Place on cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until edges begin to brown.

Transfer to cooling rack
