50 almonds, blanched
1 cup butter
3/4 cup honey
1 egg, beaten
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/8 teaspoon sea salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grind 12 of the almonds to a fine powder. Cream butter and honey together. Add egg, ground almonds, and extracts.
In another bowl, sift flour, baking powder, and salt. Add gradually to wet ingredients. Knead into a dough. (Add a drop of water or flour one at a time if necessary to make a kneadable consistency.)
Pinch off small balls of dough and place on greased cookie sheet. Press flat into 1/2-inch thickness. Make an indention in top of each cookie and place a whole almond in each. Bake for 15 minutes.
Almond extract's sweet essence of a nut is especially tasty for pastry. Can you see Bear Claws, croissants and turnovers coming your way?
