Makes 18-20 cookies

2 cups flour

1 cup almond meal or freshly ground almonds

⅔ cup powdered sugar

½ tsp salt

1 cup butter (or vegan margarine)

1 ½ tsp vanilla extract

½ tsp almond extract

20 almonds

Preheat oven to 350F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, stir together all dry ingredients. Add butter/margarine, vanilla and almond extracts, and blend until butter is thoroughly incorporated.

Shape into a 2 inch diameter log, and slice into 1/2 inch slices — the mix may look powdery and un-shapeable, but you can use your hands to “knead” the dough and shape it properly. Place cookie dough on sheets and gently press an almond into each cookie. Bake for about 20 minutes, remove from oven and cool on a wire rack.

Serve warm with a glass of milk.
