Almond Cookie Recipe

reprinted with permission from Snack Girl to the Rescue!

1 cup almonds plus 16 whole almonds
1/3 cup sugar
1 egg white
¼ teaspoon almond extract

Preheat the oven to 350 F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

In a food processor, process the cup of almonds and the sugar until very finely ground. Add the egg white and almond extract and pulse until the mixture forms a ball of dough.

Divide the dough into 4 sections. With clean hands roll each section into 4 balls (making 16 cookies) and place on the parchment paper. Stick 1 almond into each cookie, pressing down so the almonds stays put.

Bake for 15 minutes or until the cookies just start to turn golden.
