Crispy Chewy Almond Cookies

March 1, 2011


This weekend I was craving almond cookies. I wanted to make something like an almond version of pecan sandies, but that’s not what happened. My baking skills are limited and I don’t pretend to know what I’m doing. Mostly, I like to start with recipes I’m comfortable with and take baby steps away from the original to create something totally unique and my own. This almond cookie recipe was born from these flourless chocolate cookies. They aren’t the easiest to make, but are totally worth it.

Ingredients: (Makes about 1 dozen)

4 egg whites

2 cups powdered sugar

1 cup almonds (ground)

1 tablespoon almond extract

1 pinch salt


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Pulse almonds in a food processor until course.


Toast almond bits on the stove top over low heat, until fragrant. This should only take a few minutes. Set aside to cool.


In a mixing bowl, combine egg whites, powdered sugar, and almond extract.

Whisk together briskly. Once cooled, add the almond bits.


Combine and add a scant pinch of salt.


Line a cookie sheet with parchment and spoon the batter onto the paper. The batter will be very runny and rather unruly, so leave plenty of room between cookies and be gentle when sliding the cookie sheet into the oven.


Bake for approximately 13 minutes. The cookies turn a nice, golden brown when done. They will also be fragile, a tad sticky, and somewhat tricky to remove from the parchment, but you’ll get the hang of it after one or two.


They have lovely, crispy edges with a chewy center and are best enjoyed with a tall glass of milk!

Glass scraper and scraper blades are the other indispensable items that you can make use of,
especially while cleaning windows that face directly on the road.
However, in case you do not have budget left for
hiring professional and the windows of the house seem reachable by you,
you may ask for help from your neighbors to help you
on this works and you may return them some kind of reward like one impressed meal after the work finished.
The professional accessories of these providers could also reach complex corners or places.

You decide on what you want and you become crystal clear about your desire.
So it isn’t about being positive about finding your dream partner,
but about CREATING that person from scratch.
Treat yourself to the good things life has to offer because you do deserve the best.
