Happy 2012! (I baked cookies again!)

Here comes my baking trial again.  Another try for my elder son who is going back to university on Tuesday..  The chocolate chucks look funny, I just added in for my son cause chocolate is his favourite.

RECIPES FOR ALMOND SHORTBREAD COOKIES

Ingredients

  • 1 cup blended almonds
  • 1 cup all-purpose floor
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter, room temperature
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 4 ounces good-quality dark chocolate

Method

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Lower oven to 325 degrees F.

Blend  butter and sugar together with a wooden spoon until smooth. Blend  in egg and vanilla. Gradually beat the flour mixture into the butter mixture. Add the chopped almonds and mix until distributed evenly throughout.

Form into approximately 1 1/2 -inch ball and place on greased cookie sheets. Bake until firm, about 15 minutes. Remove from oven and cool on racks.

Place chocolate chunk on top of cookies.
