Almond Cookies | Almond Cookies Recipe | Christmas Treats |

Almond cookies are soft, tasty, melt-in the-mouth cookies. They are made with a few ingredients and are egg free.

We are in the last month of the year, 2020 is at last coming to a close. There seems to be a light at the end of the tunnel now. Christmas is here and time to celebrate isn’t it? Time to bake wonderful cakes and cookies. We do look forward to this month of merry and singing. Wishing all a Merry X-mas !

I have earlier shared cornflake cookies, polvorones and floral cookies. Today, I have almond cookies. I have also shared posts of  butter cookies and ghee cookies.

Almond cookies are melt in the mouth cookies, absolutely delicious and soft. They were crisp on the outside and soft inside. This is one of the cookies we loved the most.

For the almond cookies recipe, grind almonds to a powder in the small jar. All purpose flour and almond powder are mixed together with sugar and butter. A few drops of essence is added and later bind to a dough with a little milk. Refrigeration is important, you can keep it upto four hours. Later, shape them to cookies, make a design and bake them. One can dust them with castor sugar, but I have not done it.
