A puffy, round cookie with the flavor of almonds that have been rolled in powdered sugar.
Recipe type: Cookies
Serves: 36 cookies
  • 2 sticks butter, unsalted, softened
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • 1½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ¾ cup ground almonds
  • 2¼ cups all purpose flour
  • 1½ cups powdered sugar
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees
  2. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper
  3. In a large bowl, add butter, sugar, vanilla and almond extracts and salt; beat until well combined. Beat in ground almonds until combined. Beat in all purpose flour until just combined.
  4. Take about a teaspoon size of batter and roll into a ball. Place 1" apart on prepared baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes, just until bottom starts to lightly brown.
  5. Meanwhile; in a medium bowl, add 1½ cups of powdered sugar.
  6. Take cookies out of the oven and let cool for about a minute. Roll into powdered sugar and place onto cooling rack. Once cookies completely cool, roll for a second time in powdered sugar.
  7. Place in a airtight container.
You can use almond meal in place of ground almonds. To make ground almonds, just take ¾ cup of whole almonds and process in a mini food processor until ground.

The calories should be less than what I posted. I had plenty of powdered sugar left over when I rolled them. I made two batches and still had left over powdered sugar.
