These Almond Cookies guys.... are the best cookies EVER!!

I've baked several cookies over the years, but it is to these almond beauties that I keep going back. These were the first cookies I ever baked and posted. Today I'm just reposting the exact same recipe, nothing to fault there, with new photos and a video to make it easier for you to bake these almond cookies. Now you have absolute no reason not to. Right?

I would have never got around to baking anything if it weren't for a quarter packet of unsalted butter staring at me every time I opened the fridge. Frankly, I can't even remember why I bought that butter and when I used parts of it. I've been racking my brain but got nothing so far. So because I was actually bored of seeing that butter in the fridge, I decided I need to bake something. I had excess almonds available, so I got around to baking these oldies again.

Making these cookies is very very easy. All you need is 7-8 ingredients at room temperature. I use a mix of maida or all purpose flour and atta or whole wheat flour, just because I stay a little far from all purpose flour when I can. If you like you can use only all purpose flour or only whole wheat flour. The whole wheat flour here adds to the nuttiness of the cookie and is pretty much unnoticeable. I coarsely ground the almonds, you can also chop the almonds or add extra chopped almonds to give it a more almond-y taste. I plan to add the chopped almonds next time.

The important thing while baking cookies is to not over-mix the mixture. Over-mixing will give you harder cookies, so mix everything until just combined. Also, don't overdo the creaming of the butter, it is a cookie not a cake, so don't incorporate a lot of air in there. I made one batch with the full 100 gms of sugar and found it a tad too sweet. Hence, here in this recipe, I added only 3/4th of the sugar first and then added more as required.

It is recommended to chill the cookie dough before baking as it prevents the cookie from spreading too much. If you are short for time, freeze it for 15 minutes. This cookie dough did not slice well for me as it had almond pieces, so I rolled them instead of just slicing the dough. Once all that is done, just bake the cookie until it is slightly browned on the sides. When you remove the cookies out, they will feel soft, allow them to cool and they will firm up.

These Almond Cookies are crisp and not chewy. They taste great when dunked into a hot cup of chai. Don't you just love dunking your biscuits or cookies in chai? So I'm off to eat my cookies with chai.

Happy Weekend!

  1. Anu is my little sister and as much as I hate cooking she just loves it.And to say that she experiments her culinary skills on me would be wrong because I can be a nightmare when it comes to trying out things I do not like to eat.The cookies though left me craving for more.All I got were 4 and she has promised to make some more :D.

  2. I was the one who munched on the maximum of the lot ;-) hehe
