This is the recipe my friend Betsy shared with me. I like it better than other ones I have tried.


1lb butter
1/2 c sugar
1/2 c brown sugar
1 egg (beaten)
1/2 c finely chopped almonds
1 tsp almond ext
6 c flour


Mix the ingredients together and press into the tins. Make sure the edges are not too thin.
Bake at 375 F for 10 minutes

Sounds easy & wonderful – but… expensive, no? A whole pound of butter? … costs a lot here, over $5… Still, though, I’d love to try them! I’d have to go out and buy most of that stuff at once, since I don’t bake! Ay yi… 😀

I think it’s about $2-3 USD here at Aldi. Since I send the cookies to my kids it is counted in a gift budget anyway 🙂
