Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • In a medium bowl, stir together the flour and sugar. Cut in butter until a mealy consistency is reached. Add water, almond extract, and egg yolk; mix by hand and knead into a smooth ball. Wrap and refrigerate dough for up to 1 hour.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Roll pieces of dough into 1 inch balls and press down into the cookie molds or small tart molds. Press so dough is all of the way up the side of the molds, then prick with a fork to keep them from puffing up and deforming during baking.

  • Bake cookies for 15 to 20 minutes, until golden brown. Cool cookies in molds on a wire rack for 10 minutes before carefully removing to cool completely.

I grew up with these cookies and I make them every year. I mold them as thin as possible to make a crisp cookie. Make sure to cool them in the tins - they're much less likely to break. They taste great with coffee or tea. A wonderful light butter cookie not too sweet. Read More

This recipe was not good not bad... Lots of work involved. These are the kind of cookies that you would only eat to spare throwing them away. I almost had to force my family to eat these for dessert! I wouldn't recommend this to anyone unless you like stale over-buttery crumbly cookies Read More
