Almond cookies Litsa!

  • Ingredients
  • 2 cups butter unsalted (room temperature)
  • 1 ½ cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 5 ½ cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 tsp almond extract
  • 3 cups crushed almonds
  • 1 egg for the egg wash

Place butter in the mixer bowl and beat adding the sugar gradually until nice and creamy, about 3 min.

Add the eggs and continue beating.

Replace the beaters with the paddle, add the almonds and the dry ingredients and knead until you have a firm dough. Take about 2 tbsp. of the dough in your hands and form into round balls, flatten and with a cookie cutter cut into the shape you like.

Place in a pan with parchment paper, apply egg wash and bake in a preheated oven at 350 for 15-20 minutes.

Let cool and enjoy them with a nice cup of coffee.

Love Litsa!
