Eggless Almond Cookies

Today's recipe for Bake-A-Thon is a simple,eggless,mouth melting almond cookies.This cookie dough is a basic cookie dough recipe with almond flour,studded with almonds.The cookies turned out so crunchy and mouth meting and my kids loved it.The original recipe,I noted it from Land-O-Lakes and slightly tweaked it.Also it has an egg wash but I just skipped it as I want an eggless version.

  • Soak the almonds in hot water for 15 minutes and remove the skin a keep it aside.Mix in all purpose flour,milk powder,baking powder and salt in a bowl and keep it aside.
  • In a bowl take the butter and powdered sugar.Cream it well,to this add the all purpose flour mixture,mix it well.If the dough is too crumbly then add some milk and knead it to a smooth dough.
  • Take a big gooseberry size of dough and roll in to smooth ball and keep it on a lined baking tray.Continue for the rest of the dough.Now gently flatten the dough ball and press in the blanched almond in each cookies dough.Refrigerate it for 10-15 minutes.Now pre-heat the oven at 350 F and bake it for 15 minutes or till the cookies turned golden and crunchy.Remove it and cool it on a cooling rack.
  • Store it in an air tight container after its completely cool down.

  • The cookies will be crispy once its completely cool down.Do not bake it more than 15 minutes.
