ISO Almond Cookies?

Are most almond cookies made using almond extract and sugar? I have many bags of sliver almonds and am worried I won't find a good recipe that calls for a lot of them.

Not sure about the cookie question, but almond brittle is awesome!


A little bit Ginger. A little bit Mary Ann.

I can't comment on most almond cookies, but here is a very easy and tasty recipe.

In a blender or processor blitz your slivered almonds to make almond flour.


2 cups almond flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/3 cup dark maple syrup
2 tsp vanilla

preheat oven to 350

whisk together flour and baking powder

add maple syrup, and vanilla

using a spoon to mix until dough forms

on a parchment lined baking sheet portion out rounded tablespoons of dough about 1" apart.

for softer cookies leave rounded, for crisper cookies gently flatten

bake about 12 minutes until edges are golden brown

optional additions:
1/2 cup of chopped chocolate, nuts, dried fruit, or coconut

I've made these both just almond alone, and with the addition to coconut, and we found them quite tasty, easy and quick.

Use the sugared glass bottom to flatten cookies. ace into the oven and bake for 7 to 9 minutes, or u til edges begin to crisp. Remove from the oven to cooling racks.
