We came up with these almond cookies that remind us of fortune cookies but are so much easier to make.

What You'll Need:
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 4 teaspoons almond extract
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup blanched almonds
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat two large baking sheets with cooking spray.
     
  2. In a medium bowl, with an electric beater on medium speed, cream the butter and sugar. Add the egg and almond extract; mix well. Add flour, baking soda, and salt; beat until well combined and the dough is stiff.
     
  3. Roll into 1-inch balls and place on the prepared baking sheets. Flatten slightly and push an almond lightly into the top of each cookie.
     
  4. Bake 8 to 10 minutes, or until light golden. Remove to a wire rack to cool completely.

     
Notes

You can add a little more or less almond extract, depending on how "almondy" you want the cookies to be.
