Our lazy Monday just got sweeter. When I saw this recipe on Elisabeth’s blog, I knew I have to make it, with a cup of ground almonds you can’t go wrong. With sweet grandchild away on her spring break in Alberta, we are either walking her dogs or sitting around drinking coffee and munching on Elisabeth’s almond cookies. The sun is shining, the cookies are perfect, and life is good.

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1-1/4 cups flour
1 cup very finely ground almonds
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 tsp pure almond extract
32 raw almonds

• Preheat oven to 400F.
• In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar.
• Beat in the egg, the extracts and beat in half the amount of the ground almond.
• Gradually mix in the flour and the rest of the ground almonds.
• Roll the cookies into little balls and place them on a parchment lined baking sheet.
• Press the little balls slightly with a flat, floured spatula.
• Press a whole almond in the center of each cookie.
• Bake 10-12 minutes in the preheated oven, or until cookies are lightly coloured.
• Yield 32 cookies


  1. Sounds like the perfect cookie for a perfect day! As I have given up cookies (along with chocolate) for Lent I shall have to wait until Easter to try these! :)

  2. Zsuzsa, so this is how your lazy Monday looks like??? The cookies look so cute and don't seem very complicated. I must make them one day for my husband who is a big fan of almond sweets.

  3. Yes, we had another one Minxy Miss. Spring is finally here.

    We keep eating them Sissi, the texture is lovely.

  4. Hi Zsuzsa
    I'm sure you'll find this a silly question, but then I'm an amateur.

    What do you do with the egg?

  5. LOL Laszlo, you add it to the dough. Which is what I now have to do. Thank you so much for noticing. :-)
