Dutch Almond Cookies Recipe

This recipe comes from ladies of Dutch descent at my sister's church. The pleasant almond flavor pairs well with a cup of coffee.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons almond paste
  • 1 egg white, lightly beaten
  • 3 dozen whole almonds

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar. Beat in eggs and extract. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; gradually add to the creamed mixture and mix well. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or until easy to handle.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to 1/4-in. thickness; cut with a floured 2-in. round cookie cutter. Place half of the circles 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Crumble 1/2 teaspoon almond paste over each; top with remaining circles. Pinch edges to seal.
  3. Cut a small slit in top of each cookie. Brush with egg white. Press an almond in each slit. Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool. Yield: 3 dozen.
