It’s one of those recipes that when found in a book, it immediately falls open at the correct page and that page is covered in splashes; dirty finger marks and chocolate stains because it has been used so often.

RECIPE / ALMOND COOKIES

November 1, 2012
Ingredients:
  • 1/3 cup butter/or non-dairy butter
  • ¼ cup organic cane sugar
  • 1/3 cup firmly packed organic brown sugar
  • 2 tsp pure almond extract
  • 1 cup Anita’s Organic White Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1 tsp non-alum baking powder
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • ¾ cup organic almonds, coarsely chopped
Directions:

Pre-heat the oven to 325 degrees. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. In a medium size bowl beat together the butter/non-dairy butter and sugars, either by hand or by using a stand mixer. Beat until smooth and creamy. Add the almond extract and beat until well mixed. Add the chopped almonds and again mix well. In a separate bowl sieve together the flour, baking powder and salt. This mixture may be a little dry so feel free to add a few tablespoons of milk/non-dairy milk, a little at a time, to the mixture to help it hold together. Roll tablespoon size amounts of the dough into balls and flatten slightly on the baking tray. Bake for 18 to 20mins and cool on wire rack.
