Almond ShortbreadThis week, I am doing some bookmarked recipes. Every once in while, it’s nice to clear away all the recipes I see across the web that looks so scrumptious, it immediately goes onto my Pinterest board of all the recipes I want to try. However, I spend more time inventing new recipes of my own or concentrating on healthy, kid friendly recipes for my students that the Pinterest board just keeps on growing. Thanks to Srivalli who has this BM theme frequently, I get to eliminate a few.

Today’s recipes is from fellow BMer, Suma. These easy and quick to put together shortbread cookies looked so good, I couldn’t resist. The only major change I made was exchanging some of the flour for whole wheat. Using almond flour, these protein packed cookies are a relatively healthy treat.

Almond Shortbread Cookies

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Yield: 12-15 cookies

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup almond flour/ almond meal
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 3/4 cup melted butter
  • 12-15 sliced almonds

Preheat oven to 350 F. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper and spray with non stick spray.

In a large bowl, mix flours, salt and sugar.

Add almond extract and melted butter. Mix until just combined. The dough will be quite crumbly, but it will come together when you form the cookies, using the heat of your hands.

Form into balls and place on prepared cookie sheets. Flatten slightly with the palm of your hand. Press a sliced almonds into the center of each cookies.
