Another take on the basic cookie recipe. These cookies are deliciously crunchy.
What you will need
225g/8oz softened butter
140g/5oz caster sugar
1 egg yolk lightly beaten
1/2 tsp almond essence
225g/8oz plain flour
225g ground blanched almonds chopped
Beat in your egg yolk and almond essence.
Sift in your flour along with the pinch of salt
Add in the chopped ground blanched almonds
Roll the dough into a round ball, then wrap in cling film.
Chill in the fridge for about 30-60 minutes.
When you remove your dough from your fridge, roll it out and cut out your desired shape with a cookie cutter. I usually just keep these nice and round.
Bake for 15- 20 minutes then leave to cook for about 10 minutes. And there you have it, another cookie developed from the Basic cookie Recipe.
