Crisp Almond Cookies-a thin crisp cookie full of almond flavor
I do some of my best baking late at night. Everyone is in bed, there’s nothing on TV to watch. I’ve thrown a load of laundry in the washer. So now I need to stay close so those clothes can be put in the dryer before I go to bed. There is nothing worse than wet clothes left in the washer too long. That moldy smell just never goes away completely. And I don’t like to wake up to chores.
I’m the same way with dishes. I make sure all the dishes are washed and put away before I go to bed.
Sunday night was one of those nights. It wasn’t that late, maybe 9:30? I wanted to make more Chocolate Almond Butter. You know, the stuff that tastes like Nutella but with an almond flavor. Yeah, I’m not a big fan of hazelnuts.
It happened again.
Out of Cocoa Powder. That’s not completely true. I did have 3 cans of the Hershey’s Special Dark cocoa powder. I could have used that but I didn’t want to.
Time to adapt. I didn’t want to waste a bunch of ingredients. I’d already started chopping the almonds in my handy dandy chopper. Which by the way, I finally killed. It had a good life, 20+ years. So now I’m going to look for a good food processor to replace it with.
When everything else fails, make cookies. You can never go wrong when you start with butter and sugar. I kept it simple. There’s nothing wrong with simple when it comes to a cookie.
Simple lets the full flavors of butter, almonds and vanilla come through.
I thought these would be an “adult cookie.” Something to enjoy with a cup of tea. These are good with tea, and coffee, and milk. These also turned out to be a favorite with my kids. They fought over who would get to take them to school to share with friends.
We ended up dividing them evenly. And I now have to bake more cookies for sharing.
