For some reason even the best Chinese restaurants usually serve factory-packaged almond cookies with all the appeal of a cardboard beer coaster with a toenail on top. Here’s how to get that disgusting image out of your brain.
- 1⁄2 cup butter, softened
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 1⁄4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1⁄2 cup ground almonds
- 2 tsp. Amaretto liqueur
Preheat oven to 400°.
Cream together the butter and sugar. Beat in the egg, amaretto, and almonds.
Gradually mix in the flour until well blended.
Drop by teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake 5 to 8 minutes in the preheated oven, or until cookies are lightly colored.
