Glazed Almond Cookies5 Reviews
“Elegant little tea cookies with an almond pressed into the top. I like to cut the whole almonds in half to put on top of the cookies.” - by Nancy
Original recipe yields 4 dozen
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.
- In a medium bowl, cream the butter and sugar until light. Beat in the almond and vanilla extracts and the egg yolks. Next, stir in the chopped almonds, flour and salt. Roll the dough into 1 inch balls, dip the balls into the egg whites. Place cookies 2 inches apart on the prepared cookie sheet. Press a whole almond into the top of the ball, flattening the cookie a little bit.
- Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until edges start to brown.

"the cookies turned out, except the recipe does not give any info for the glaze. They are like the chinese almond cakes in that they are cake like in texture (puffy, not flat like the photo) - I guess..." See more because of the cake flour. I would recommend roasting the whole almonds to make them crunchy on the cookies...they are kind of soft otherwise."
"My mother made these cookies at Christmas time when I was growing up. YUM! May want to use unsalted butter and/or reduce the amount of salt in recipe, depending on taste preferences...." See more"
