I’m excited to share a yummy, simple recipe with you today that deserves a place of honor on any cookie plates you may be putting together this holiday season. Your friends and neighbors will love you and they won’t be able to stop talking about these lovely little pillows of almond goodness.
I love almond flavoring and especially love it in my cookies. My very favorite sugar cookie of all times has almond extract in it. Another one of my favorite almond is recipes is this Almond Torte. I can’t ever quite get enough of it.
Today’s recipe for chewy almond cookies is about as easy as a cookie recipe can get – only three ingredients. The recipe uses almond paste which can be found in the baking aisle of your grocery store, sugar and eggs. That’s yet.
Place the almond paste and sugar in your food processor and process until it is all broken up and then add in your eggs and pulse until it comes together and is smooth.
You will need a pastry bag and a large round tip, about 3/4 inch in diameter. Fill your bag with your mixture and then pipe out about 1 inch rounds onto a parchment lined cookie sheet.
You will end up with little points on your cookies, just dab your finger into some water and smooth off the top of the cookie.
Bake at 300 for about 15 minutes, rotate pan around halfway through the baking process. Bake just until the edges begin to turn golden brown.
Let them cool and remove from the parchment paper. The only thing left to do is take a bite and enjoy the soft , chewy almond goodness.
