Baked Almond Cookies
|Flour||1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)|
|Baking powder||1⁄2 Teaspoon|
|Sesame seed oil||1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)|
|Ground almonds||1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)|
|Almond extract||1⁄2 Teaspoon|
|Sugar||3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)|
|Whole blanched almonds||20|
Sift the flour and baking powder in a mixing bowl.
Slowly add the oil and mix well.
Add the almonds, almond extract, sugar, salt and whole egg and stir thoroughly.
This should be a stiff dough, but if it is too stiff to work with, add a drop of water at a time till the dough is pliable.
Form into small balls and press into cookies 1/2 inch thick and about 2 1/2 inches in diameter.
Place an almond in the center of each cookie.
Place on lightly greased cookie sheet and bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes or until they are light brown in color.
Cool and serve.
