Almond Butter Cookies

The Almond Butter Cookies Recipe The addition of almond extract makes these delicious cookies quite grown up and not overly sweet.

11 tbsp unsalted butter, softened and diced
1⁄2 cup sugar
1 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted, extra for dusting
1⁄3 cup sliced almonds, lightly toasted if preferred
1 tsp almond extract
1 large egg yolk

1 Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).

2 Combine the butter, sugar, and flour in a bowl, or in the bowl of a food processor with a blade attachment. Rub or process together until it forms fine crumbs. Mix in the almonds.

3 Add the egg yolk and almond extract, and bring the mixture together into a dough. Knead briefly to form a smooth dough. Roll out to 1⁄4in (5mm) thick.

4 Cut out cookies with the cookie cutter and transfer to several non-stick baking sheets.

5 Bake in the oven for 12–15 minutes until golden brown at the edges. Leave for a few minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool. STORE The cookies will keep in an airtight container for 5 days.

Always look for almond extract, as bottles labeled “essence” are made from synthetic flavorings. For excellent after-dinner cookies to have with coffee, roll the cookies out as thin as you dare and bake for 5–8 minutes only.
