Almond Meltaway Cookies


Almond Meltaway Cookies

I made a batch of these for Christmas and they were lovely. With the almond in the cookies and the vanilla in the icing they are wonderful. I sprinkled finely chopped almonds on top too. 

I would add a bit less almond extract to the icing next time, but otherwise very light and delicious. The one thing I had trouble with though was the “rolling” of the dough… It was more like drop a glob onto the baking sheet and gently spread with a spoon!


The mixture was soo soft and sticky there was no chance of rolling. Either a little more flour or a little less butter next time, but there will definitely be a next time. These were yummy.


INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon flaked sea salt (or can use regular table salt)
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons almond extract
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon milk (or water)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons almond extract


DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a stand mixer, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg and almond extract, mixing until combined. Add flour mixture 1/2 cup at a time, mixing until completely combined.
  4. Roll 1 tablespoon of dough into small circles and then press with hands (or with the bottom of a cup) into a disk shape. Place on prepared baking sheet.
  5. Bake for 8 minutes. The cookies will not look browned or cooked, but they are! Remove from oven and let cookies rest on baking sheet for 5 minutes. Then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  6. To Ice: In a small bowl, whisk together powdered sugar, milk and almond extract - until smooth.
  7. Using a spoon, smooth icing onto the top of each cookie and let set for 10 minutes, or until hardened. Store in the fridge.
