Butter Almond Cookies Recipe


Butter Almond Cookies                




Ingredients:
1 Cup butter
3/4 Cup sugar
2 Cup unbleached white flour
2 Dozen whole almonds, blanched or toasted
1/4 Cup confectioners sugar for dusting

Method:
Cream butter and sugar and mix well. Gradually add the flour until the dough can be handled. With lightly floured hands, shape the dough into round cookies about 1 1/2-inches in diameter and 1/4 to 1/2-inch thick. Lightly press an almond into the center of each cookie. Place cookies on an ungreased cookie sheet about 1-inch apart. Bake at 300 degrees for about 20 minutes, until cookies are golden. Allow cookies to cool slightly and then dust with confectioners sugar.

Makes about 2 dozen.
