Almond Cookies Recipe

Butter Cookies with Sliced Almonds

As my previous post stated, recently I am hooked on flour-loaded foods; last night, my craving for Carbohydrates hit me once again and the end results were these butter cookies with sliced almonds.

Yum.

Now I have to make a little confession–I have never made cookies before–so I make no pretense to be a patissier (I didn’t even know that baking requires baking powder!). Hence, I make no apologies when my creation did not turn out to be perfect 10 (the cookies became a tad too hard the morning after). The butter cookies were still pleasing and irresistable and I savored each biteful slowly, each crumb and crust.

    Dear readers,

    I upgraded to the new Blogger Beta and accidentally deleted my old file of this Cookies post and lost a couple of comments from you. I am very sad. :(

    Plus now my “Previous Posts” are messed up as they no longer change dynamically and all my older posts do not show up anymore. And that’s not all, my “Archives” also go to 404 Page Not Found.

    I have sent an email to Blogger but the chance of they answering my email is very slim so I am helpless. If you are a whiz kid and use Blogger as your publishing tool, please let me know if you can help.

    My email is bee@foreverbee.com.

    Thanks,

    So it looks like I fixed the archives issue so now they are pointing to the right place, but my “Previous Posts” still don’t change dynamically like it used to be.

    If you know, please help.

    Sorry to hear that…I hope you fix the blog problems soon.

    On a much lighter note, your cookies look very yummy and seems to be very easy to make. Maybe I will baking them too. :)

    Cookies harden as the fat used in baking them cools. To soften them up again, place on a dry paper towel and microwave for a few seconds. You can also pop them on a piece of foil and toast them for up to a minute in a toaster oven. The softness and just-out-of-the-oven flavor will come right back.

    Try not to heat them for too long. You just want to raise their temperature a little, not cook them further.

    Sorry to hear that…let me try to type what I had commented earlier.

    For someone baking cookies for the first time, the cookies sure looks good! Success!

    Chubbypanda,

    Thanks for your tips! I will try them the next time I make cookies.

    MW – Oh well, I think I fixed most of my problems, but my Previous Posts are still not working. They are fixed at 10 posts and no longer change dynamically. ARGHHHHH!

    A teaspoon of almond extract would be better in these cookies. I have used a recipe from the ‘Better Homes and Gardens” “Oriental Cookbook” I got rave reviews from friends and family for them. Also;put a dab of white corn syrup on the cookie and then an almond before baking. The syrup keeps the almond from falling off.
