My aayi keeps reminding me about nutritional values of almonds and suggests me to add it to my diet. Every time she told me about it, I would go and buy one pack of almond. Last week, I found I had a huge pack of almonds at home. So I thought of making cookies with them. I tried the first recipe that I found
from here. I changed it a bit to suit our taste and also make them eggless. The cookies turned out to be awesome. I am going to make some more again now.
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 cup(150gms) almonds
1/2 tea spn baking powder
3/4 cup sugar
1 tea spn vanilla extract
1/4 tea spn salt
Few chocolate morsels(optional)
Grind almonds into powder – it need not become very fine. Keep aside.
Preheat the oven at 375F for about 10mins.
Mix butter and sugar till they form a uniform mixture.
Now add almond powder, baking powder, vanilla extract, salt, all purpose flour and mix.
Make small balls from the mixture and keep them on a greased cookie sheet. Leave enough space between two balls as the cookies expand after baking.
Keep one chocolate morsel on the cookie (optional). Bake at 375F for about 12-15mins.
When they are cooled to room temperature, they become very crispy.
Makes about 2 dozen cookies
