~ Almond Shortbread Cookies ~
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup powder sugar
1 egg, beaten
1/4 t powdered butter flavoring
1 t vanilla
2 t almond extract
1/2 t cream tarter
1/2 t baking soda
1/4 t salt
1 3/4 cups flour
1/2 cup finely chopped almonds
Preheat oven to 350F.
Measure flour, cream of tarter and baking soda and
set aside. Beat butter and both sugars together until
fluffy. Add beaten egg, vanilla, almond extract, butter
buds, and salt. Beat all ingredients until well blended.
Add flour, cream of tarter and baking soda mixture about
a third at a time and beat until smooth. Dough will come
away from the mixing bowl and will look a little dry.
When cookie dough is blended stir in almonds, a spoon
works much better. Chill dough for 30 - 45 minutes.
Roll cookie dough into 1 1 1/4 inch balls and place on
a ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten ball until they are
about 1/4 inch thick. Bake for about 12 - 15 minutes
until lightly golden. Remove cookies from cookie sheet
and place on paper towel to cool.
Makes 48 cookies
For gift giving, package cookies in a cellophane bag.
Place cellophane bag in sponge painted gift box. Use
homespun fabric or Christmas ribbon for the bow.
Add gift tag.
