~ Almond Spice Cookies ~

4 cup all-purpose flour
3 t cinnamon
1 t ginger
1/2 t salt
1 t baking soda
1 cup butter
2 t instant coffee powder
1/2 t almond extract
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup dark brown sugar, firmly packed
3 large eggs
10 oz slivered blanched almonds**
(**2 1/2 - 3 cups)

Preheat oven to 375F.
In a bowl, sift together the flour, cinnamon,
ginger, salt and baking soda and set aside. In
a large bowl, cream the butter. Add the coffee,
almond extract, granulated and brown sugars and
beat well. Add the eggs one at a time until smooth
after each addition. On low speed gradually add
the sifted dry ingredients, scraping the bowl with
a rubber spatula and beating only until the mixture
is smooth. Gently mix in the almonds. Spread out
two pieces of wax paper. place large spoonfuls of
the dough lengthwise on each piece of paper to form
heavy strips about 10-11 inches long. Fold the
long sides of the paper against the dough and,
pressing against the paper with your hands, shape
each strip of dough into a smooth oblong 12 inches
long, 3 inches wide, and about 1 inch thick. Wrap
the dough in the wax paper. Slide a cookie sheet
under both packages of dough and transfer them to
the freezer or refrigerator for several hours or
overnight. This slices best when dough is frozen
solid. Unwrap one roll of dough at a time. Place
dough on a cutting board. With a very sharp knife
cut the dough into 1/4-inch slices and place them
1 to 1 1/2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake the cookies for about 10-12 minutes. The cookies
are done when they are slightly colored and spring
back when lightly pressed with a fingertip.


For gift giving package cookies in cellophane bag.
Place bag in decorative paper bags lined tissue paper.
