Almond Shortbread Cookies


I know it seems like over dosage of cookies this week but each one is different and delicious in it's own way. I had planned and baked something else but could not let go without posting these crunchy, buttery, shortbread cookies that have become our recent favorite.

Ingredients: (yield about 22 cookies)
1 cup almond flour (or just grind almonds in a food processor.)
1 & 1/2 cup all purpose flour
3/4 cup melted butter (vegan margarine for vegan version)
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
A pinch of salt

Method:
* Preheat the oven to 350 deg F / 175 deg C.
* Add all the ingredients to a food processor and pulse until dough is formed. Or work the dough with hand in a mixing bowl.
* Transfer the mixture to a bowl. Divide the mixture into 20 (more or less) equal portions. Roll each one to a ball and flatten it slightly.
* Arrange them on an ungreased cooking sheet.
* Bake until golden or for about 15 minutes.

Narayan Swamy said...

A small question - does one grind the almonds with the skin or after blanching it.

Suma Gandlur said...

Narayan, you can grind the almonds with skin on if you don't have the blanched ones.
