Almond Biscuits (Cookies)

I am in such a cookie making mood today! I have no idea why but last night I had to force myself to go upstairs to bed and NOT make cookies at 10:30 at night. LOL.

This afternoon I'm surrounded by ideas and haven't a clue which one I want to make but I know I don't want to make 'bars' - only cookies, which of course are called 'biscuits' in Europe. And why is that important enough to mention here? Because my dears, I'm currently surrounded by a bunch of yummy European recipes... all of which look amazing but I think (???) this one might win out;

Almond Biscuits

75 g butter
25 g icing sugar
75 g flour
15 g flaked almonds

Preheat oven to 400 F (gas mark 6) - Line baking tray with parchment paper. Cream butter and icing sugar until fluffy and pale. Fold in the flour with a metal spoon. Spoon into a piping bag fitted with a 1 cm nozzle. Pipe 7 cm lengths and sprinkle with flaked almonds. Bake until pale golden brown and dust with more icing sugar.

Yes... I have to convert all the grams to ounces and then to cup portions... but they sound so heavenly right now I just might have to do that. It's a short recipe, t'won't be hard!Print Friendly and PDF
