Almond Cookies


These cookies are very delicious perfect for a snack with a cup of tea. Actually these are made of a leftover tart dough. That's why I was surprised how they turned out. These aren't the chewy gooey cookies but flaky and crispy ones. You won't be disappointed!

Almond Cookies

1/4 cup whole toasted almonds
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/4 cups plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold and cut into cubes
1 large egg, lightly whisked

1) Put the almonds and sugar in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until the almonds are finely ground. Add the flour and salt and pulse until just combined. 

2) Add the butter and pulse until sandy, about 6 to 10 quick pulses. Add the egg and pulse until the dough comes together into a ball. 

3) Form the dough into a disk, wrap in plastic, and refrigerate for at least an hour, or overnight. Take out of refrigerator and form little balls. Press to flatten. Put on a baking sheet and bake in a preheated oven (180deg C) until golden brown.
