Chinese Almond Cookies
1 1/3 cups of almond flour, lightly packed
1 cup of unsalted butter, chilled and cut into cubes
Pinch of kosher salt
2 eggs
1 teaspoon of almond extract
1 3/4 cups of flour 1 cup + 2 tablespoons of sugar
1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
Thinly sliced almonds
1 Place the almond flour, salt, and butter into an electric beater with a paddle attachment and beat on medium speed for three minutes. The mixture will become course and chunky looking. 2 Add one of the eggs, reserving the other for later, and the almond extract. Mix on low speed until just incorporated. 3 Sift together the flour, sugar, and baking soda then add to the butter mixture at low speed. Mix until just combined. Take the dough and flatten it into a disc and wrap in plastic wrap. Place it in the refrigerator for two hours to chill. 5Preheat the oven to 325F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the other egg into a bowl and beat it.6 Take pieces of dough and roll them into balls about a half-inch wide. Place them on the sheet about and inch apart and then press them down slightly with your palm to make a coin shape.7 Place a slivered almond onto each cookie and lightly press it into place, then paint the surface of the cookie with some of the beaten egg using a pastry brush or your finger (this will give the cookie a lacquered appearance once it bakes). 8 Bake for 13-15 minutes or until the edges just being to tan. Cool on the sheet on a wire rack.
Makes 5 dozen.
