Crisp Almond Cookies

Crisp Almond Cookies-a thin crisp cookie full of almond flavor..

When everything else fails, make cookies. You can never go wrong when you start with butter and sugar. I kept it simple. There’s nothing wrong with simple when it comes to a cookie.

Simple lets the full flavors of butter, almonds and vanilla come through.

  1. Cream together butter and sugars, until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add in eggs and vanilla and beat again.
  3. Combine flour, baking powder and salt. Add flour mixture to dough, one third at a time until all added. Stir in almonds.
  4. Using a small cookie scoop, place dough on a parchment lined baking sheet three inches apart (these cookies spread.) Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 8-9 minutes. Until edges turn golden. Let cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to racks to cool completely.
