Almond Cookies Recipe
Almond Cookies Recipe – Almond cookies symbolize coins and will be sure to bring you good fortune.
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.
Butter Cookies with Sliced Almonds Recipe
Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add vanilla. Sift together flour, salt, and baking powder. Stir dry ingredients and sliced almonds into butter mixture; mixing until well blended. Shape dough into small balls and flatten them. Place on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake butter cookies at 300° for 20 minutes, or until just lightly browned.
