~ Chinese Almond Cookies ~

1 cup butter or margarine, room temperature
1 cup sugar
1 large egg
1/2 t almond extract
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 t baking powder
1 large egg yolk
1 T milk
1/3 cup blanched whole almonds
2 T sesame seeds

Preheat oven to 325F.
In a large bowl, with a mixer on medium speed, beat
1 cup butter and sugar until smooth. Add whole egg
and almond extract and beat until well blended. Add
flour and baking powder; stir to mix, then beat until
well blended. Shape dough into 1-inch balls, flatten
each slightly, and place about 1 inch apart on buttered
12x15 inch baking sheets. In a small bowl, beat egg
yolk with milk to blend. Brush cookies lightly with
egg mixture; discard any remaining. Press an almond
into the center of each cookie and sprinkle with about
1/8 teaspoon sesame seeds. Bake until lightly browned,
15 - 20 minutes; if baking two sheets at once in one
oven, switch their positions halfway through baking.
Let cookies cool on sheets for 5 minutes, then use a
wide spatula to transfer to racks to cool completely.
Makes 4 dozen cookies


For gift giving package cookies in cellophane bag.
Place bag of cookies in a decorated bag. Use
paperbacked fusible web, assorted fabrics for
