Fancy Butter Tea Cookies
A basic Butter Tea Cookie, with almond paste and chopped almonds added to the dough. He rounded the cookies, baked them off, once cooled he had lackeys (me) to roll them in powdered sugar. The recipe makes 5 pounds 7 ounces of cookie dough.
1 pound 8 ounces butter
12 ounces granulated sugar
6 ounces Confectioner's sugar
6 ounces Almond paste
8 ounces finely chopped toasted almonds
9 ounces eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
Cream into butter mixture, then mix in 2 pounds 4 ounces Cake Flour.
It says you can bag if you want or use a tablespoon to make rounds. I think the bagging would be so much easier. Bake @ 375 degrees for about 10 minutes.
