Easy Almond Cookies

I love to make all kinds of cookies as the holidays near, but these Easy Almond Cookies take the cake! I make them with my cookie press, so they’re a bit on the tiny side, but you wouldn’t know it by tasting them. These are so full of flavor for being so small that you’ll kick yourself for not making them sooner!

Easy Almond CookiesEasy Almond Cookie Recipe

 

Ingredients:

1 cup  and 2 Tbs. butter, softened
1 cup white, granulated sugar
2 1/3 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 tsp almond extract
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1 large egg
 

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Combine the butter, almond extract, vanilla extract and egg in one large mixing bowl. Mix well. In a separate bowl, blend together the flour, sugar and salt. Add the flour mixture gradually into the butter mixture. Blend well. Separate the dough into 4 equal sections and roll those sections into rolls/logs (size and number of rolls will depend upon your cookie press). Chill the rolls of dough for about 40 minutes. You want the rolls to be stiff enough to put into the cookie press, but pliable enough that they can be easily pressed without harming your cookie press.

Choose your preferred press plate. I like to use this ornament-style press during the holiday season because it looks so pretty. Prepare your cookie press and add the dough.

I use two clicks for these cookies, as one click just doesn’t provide a big enough cookie for my preference. I press 24 of these cookies to a tray.

Bake for 6 minutes. Remove from oven and transfer to a wire rack immediately.
