Why I Love This Recipe

These Cookies remind me of a cookie my mother used to make at Christmas time. I don't have her recipe, but this is pretty close. I got this recipe from the McCall's cookbook but tweaked it a bit :)

Ingredients You'll Need

3/4 C. Soft Butter
1/3 C. Sugar
1 t. Almond Extract
1 Egg
2 C. Sifted Flour
1/4 t. Salt
1/2 C. Almonds (chopped)
Powder Sugar


Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly grease cookie sheets. In large bowl, beat butter, sugar and almond extract until light and fluffy. Gently beat in egg. Add flour, 1 cup at a time and beat. Add all other ingrediants and beat until well blended. With hands, shape into a 1" ball and place 1" apart on cookie sheet. Bake for 15 - 20 minutes, or until just delicately browned... Remove from cookie sheet and let cool. Roll in powder sugar....

Number Of Servings:Makes 2-3 doz.

Preparation Time: 15 min.
