Want to know something new? I’ve got a really easy recipe to create some wonderful almond cookies ! I was looking for an easy recipe to  prepare something I could give as a gift to a friend of mine, and I came across the classic four fourth cake recipe, that consist in equal parts of each ingredients: weight 4 eggs and add the same weight of butter, flour and sugar and some baking powder. You will get a soft and tasty cake.
Then I thought that I could apply the same concept to a cookie recipe and, since I truly love almonds, I’ve tried this one, it came out a wonderful idea and, most of all, it’s really easy you can prepare those cookies with your kids and let them choose their favorite shape and decorations.

 

Ingredients

  • 130gr of grounded almond
  • 130gr muscovado sugar (you can substitute with caster sugar)
  • 130gr of regular flour
  • 130gr butter
  • chocolate chips, dried apricots, almonds or any dried fruit you like

Method

Step 1

Put all the ingredients in a food processor and turn it on. Let it mix until it gathers and turn into a ball. Put the dough on the cutting board and knead for 30 seconds to make it silky. Cover your hands with flour because the dough is very greasy.

Step 2

Flatten the dough with a rolling pin and cut it into equal shape pieces. You can also cut it with your favorite cookie cutters. Just use your fantasy! I made little balls and then I flattened them with a fork to give them this striped shape on top. I've put dried apricots, chocolate chips and almonds on top to create a funny decoration. To make them stick to each cookie I've pushed them a little with my finger.

Step 3

Put in the fridge for 30/40 minutes and then put in a preheated oven at 180°C for 15/20 minutes. Let the cookies cool down completely to fully enjoy their unique texture.

SUGGESTIONS

You can wrap these cookies in a nice box and use them as a wonderful home made Christmas gift, what do you think?
