Almond Sugar Cookies, some with chocolate

Now, here's one that's been around since grandma's were invented—That great ol’ standby, Almond Sugar Cookie. It's a recipe I'm sure to turn to when this Christmas holiday is here again because it is one that rolls out easily to make those lovely shapes. Fun to make almond sugar cookies with the kids or grand kids.

The Recipe below is a never fail Almond Sugar Cookie, that will melt in your mouth if ya don't over bake ‘em! Yum!!

These almond sugar cookies are to be each topped with a whole almond. Cookie batter will get rolled up like a rope and cut into one inch cookies. A great choice if you want to make a big batch, shaping is easy and fast.

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.

Almond Sugar Cookies Recipe Ingredients:

1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
(HINT: use butter, they sure taste better even if there are a few more calories. Geeze! You’re eating a cookie, not a piece of celery. Forget the diet for once!) 1 cup white sugar (granulated)
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 egg (lightly beaten in a small bowl with a fork, remember, like I told you in those other recipes?)
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
3/4 tsp. ground cardamom
5 dozen whole blanched almonds

Get out a big bowl and your electric mixer, beat the butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until creamy.
Add the egg and vanilla, beat until combined.
In another bowl, stir together flour, salt, baking powder, cardamom and cinnamon; gradually add to butter mixture. Blend almond sugar cookies batter thoroughly. Dump cookie mixture out and onto a lightly floured board. Divide cookie mixture into 4 equal portions.

Next, roll each portion into a 15 inch rope. Cut each rope into 1 inch or so pieces. Gently press an almond or two into each piece. Place cookies 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake almond sugar cookies in a oven at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Then let it cool on baking sheets for one minute, next, transfer off of cookie sheets to a cool surface. Store almond cookies in an airtight container.
This almond sugar cookie recipe makes about 4 dozen cookies.

If you make these Almond Sugar Cookies a few days early before company arrives for one of those great holidays of fun & food, they freeze with no problem, and thaw quickly.

Grandma's Cookies and Tea

As I watched the sun sink low in the west, I reminisced about my grandma and how she loved the sunset. She would sit on the swing on the porch, eating one of her famous sugar cookies and sipping her cup of tea. She would watch the big, round, yellow ball kiss the horizon and softly say a prayer thanking God for another beautiful day.

However, during the day she did what she loved best. She would get out her recipe box and go through her cookie recipes to see what she thought would appeal to her loved ones. She knew that my favorite was oatmeal and raisin and my brother’s was brownies with frosting on them. My sister was partial to Grandma’s peanut butter cookies.

She would finally decide on which cookie she was going to bake that day. No matter what Grandma made they were always a hit!!

Oh how I miss my Grandma’s home baking. Grandma left her cooking sheets and cookie recipes for me, but somehow, no matter how hard I try, I can never get mine to taste the same as Grandmas! But I won’t give up because I am sure one day, my granddaughters will reminisce about their Grandma’s cookies and try to get them to taste as good as mine!

In case you haven’t heard … gourmet style cookies are to 2013 what cupcakes were for 2011! The cookie's somewhat dull, predictable reputation has undergone a complete makeover from glazed and filled to become the latest trend in the pastry scene. Artisan and “designer” cookies are popping up at local Farmer’s Markets, specialized bakeries and are even being featured on menus in restaurants, as a delightfully delicious dessert.
