These Almond Cookies are a melt in your mouth almond cookie with an almond glaze.
My mother-in-law introduced me to these Almond Cookies which are a recipe from her good friend.
When I think Almond cookie I have to admit I am not immediately jumping for joy but these suckers proved me wrong.
They melt in your mouth. They are supposed to be smaller and thicker almost like a thick Checker but this was the first batch and the second batch was gone before I could snap a picture.
  • Cookies:
  • 1 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Glaze:
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 3 teaspoons water

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a bowl blend the butter, sugar, and almond extract. In a separate bowl mix the flour, baking powder, and salt. Add the flour mixture 2 Tablespoons at a time to the butter mixture until completely combined (important!!)
  2. Roll into small balls and flatten slightly. They should look like a thick checker. Cook for 7 minutes (they will not look done) at 400 degrees on a parchment lined pan. Cool cookies until they are just warm and place sliced almonds on top of each cookie.
  3. For the glaze: Combine powdered sugar, almond extract, and water. Drizzle a spoonful of glaze on top of the almonds and cookie.
