Almonds Cookies

Few days ago I baked another batch of cookies.I bought some almonds,walnuts and cashews nut from Trader's Joe. I found that making cookies using almonds nuts is much much better than using almond flavoring.The almond flavoring smell weird and unappetizing but almonds nut is another whole different story .It's make the whole house smell good after baking.I was surprised with the unexpected result.And I love to use this recipe again for sandwich cookies.I used few different shape of small cookies cutter for this almonds cookies.It's also an excuse for me to use this new cookies cutter which I brought back from Malaysia.



Ingrendiets:


2 cup blanced almonds


3 cup flour


3 sticks butter at room temperature (12 oz)


1 cup sugar


2 tsp vanilla extract


2 egg


1/2 tsp salt



For Topping


1 egg


1/4 cup sliced almonds









Method;



1:Placed blanched almonds and 6 tbsp of flour in a food processor,blender or nut grinder and process until finely ground.


2:With Electric mixer,cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.Stir in vanilla extract.Add the ground almonds and remaining flour and mix well to form a dough.Gather into a ball,wrap in a wax paper, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or more.


3:Preheat oven to 325 F.Line 2 cookie sheets with wax paper.


4:Divide the dough into 4 equal parts.Working with one section of dough at a time,roll out to a thickness surface.With a cookies mould,stamp out the shapes until finish.Gather the dough scrapes,roll out, and stamp out more shape with cookies cutter.Repeat with the remaining dough.


5: Whisk the egg with salt until just frothy.Brush cookies top with the egg wash,then sprinkle over the sliced almonds.
