Almond Supreme Cookies

Almond Supreme Cookies {Grain Free}

Almond Supreme Cookies are a splurge meant for the holidays. Packed with almond paste and almond flour, chewy almond goodness awaits you after crunching through the almond coating.Almond Supreme Cookies

Do you like baking with almond flour?  Because you will after tasting these cookies.  Usually I hesitate to make recipes that call for almond flour alone, because it is more expensive than other flours.  But some recipes are worth the indulgence.

I am actually glad I have held off making almond cookies until now.  It’s good to save such rich cookies for the holiday season, because that makes them more of a special treat.  And not all treats have to be loaded with icing or frosting either.  These cookies are the perfect level of sweetness.  I suggest you make them to share or give away, because it’s possible to keep eating them without feeling the need to stop.  All that almond goodness just keeps beckoning.

Almond Supreme Cookies {Grain Free}

  • Servings: 22 to 24 cookies
  • Print

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup almond paste (I used this almond paste recipe to make my own)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup blanched almond flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure almond extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg white
  • 1 cup slivered almonds
  • icing sugar (powdered sugar) for dusting, optional

Directions:

  1. In a mixing bowl, break apart the almond paste.  Add sugar, salt, and almond flour.  Mix until relatively even crumbles form.
  2. Add the egg white and extracts and mix on low speed until smooth.  Chill the dough for 30 minutes.
  3. Preheat oven to 170 C (325 degrees F).  Line baking trays with parchment.  Pour slivered almonds into a shallow bowl.  Scoop out dough in 2 teaspoon portions and roll the dough into balls.  Then roll each ball in almonds to coat.
  4. Transfer each ball of cookie dough to the baking sheet, spacing them at least 2 cm apart.  Lightly press the almonds into the cookie dough.
  5. Bake cookies in a preheated oven for 18 to 20 minutes, or until almonds and cookie edges are golden.  Remove trays from oven and keep cookies on the tray for about 5 minutes before transferring to cooling racks.
  6. Dust cookies with icing sugar before serving.
