Buttery, sugary, almondy cookies. Need I say more? This recipe came from my bridal shower as well, and I am ashamed to say I am just now making it for the first time. I can’t believe we have been missing out on these cookies for three years!
Almond Butter Cookies, by Sharon Pfrang
1/2 cup softened butter (very!!! soft)
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp almond extract
1 1/4 cup flour
1/4 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 375F. Cream together butter, sugar, vanilla, and almond extract. Mix in flour and salt and stir until you get a play-dough looking result. Chill in fridge for 30 minutes. Roll out the dough and cut with your favorite cookie cutter. Optional: Sprinkle with colored sprinkles… I didn’t, they were still delicious.
Place cookies onto greased baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes.
These are so good. I promise you will like them. Especially because they are easy, but delicious. I think next time I will make some sort of jam or chocolate filling and make little sandwiches out of them.
