    bluemoon downunder's Note:

    Adapted from a recipe I found in Rodale's 'All Occasion Cookies: 100 Fast and Fabulous Treats', and which I have posted for the 2005 Zaar World Tour. I deliberated for some time over whether or not to post this recipe - there are a handful of similar recipes already posted - but so often it's the small differences between recipes, be it in the ingredients or in the instructions, that make the end results very different. Serve after a Chinese meal, as part of a Chinese New Year Banquet or at any time as a dessert or snack.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    cookies

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 350°F, and mix the first four ingredients - the flour, baking powder, salt and chopped slivered almonds - in a medium-sized bowl.
    2. 2
      With an electric mixer on medium speed, cream the butter and sugar in a large bowl until the mixture is light and fluffy; add the egg and almond extract and beat until the ingredients are all well-combined.
    3. 3
      Reduce the electric mixer speed to low and blend in the flour mixture.
    4. 4
      Roll the dough into 11/4-inch balls, and place the balls 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Flatten the balls slightly and press an almond into the centre of each cookie.
    5. 5
      Whisk the egg yolk and water together in a cup and lightly brush over the cookies.
    6. 6
      Bake the cookies for 11-15 minutes, until just set, then transfer them to wire racks to cool completely.
    7. 7
      Notes: If you prefer, in step four, use several slivered almonds instead of the blanched whole almonds.

      I made this recipe as posted except for a little extra almond extract. Next time I think I will double the almond extract and add more of the chopped almonds. Thanks for sharing.

      We thought these were great! Great flavor. I did use egg white instead of yolk because I was worried about scrambled eggs on top of my cookies and white seemed more sensible.
