Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Blend all-purpose flour, almond flour, confectioners' sugar, and salt together in a food processor. Add butter; pulse until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add egg yolk, extracts, and ice water and pulse just until a smooth dough forms.

  • Turn dough out onto a work surface, divide in half, form into disks, and dust each disk with flour. Wrap disks in plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm and cold, at least 1 hour to overnight.

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

  • Roll 1 dough disk out onto a floured surface with a floured rolling pin to 1/8-inch thickness. Use a floured 1 1/2-inch round cookie cutter to cut dough into rounds. Cut out the center of each round with a 1/2-inch floured round cookie cutter to form rings. Repeat with remaining dough disk.

  • Cut through side of 1 dough ring and slip it around another to intertwine rings, pressing cut pieces together to seal ring. Place interlocked rings on prepared baking sheets.

  • Beat egg white until frothy. Gently brush each "love knot" with egg white and sprinkle with turbinado sugar. Bake in the center of the preheated oven until lightly browned on edges, 15 to 18 minutes. Carefully transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.

I have made this recipe twice - the first time I did not have any almond flour so I substituted with regular all purpose flour. These cookies were good and had many good reviews; however last night I made them with almond flour - what a difference! They are light crisp on the outside and packed with almond flavor. These cookies are perfect for bridal showers and teas. Read More

These cookies were exactly as described -- light crispy and buttery. I agree with another reviewer that they are perfect for a ladies tea or bridal shower. The dough was very easy to work with. I didn't have the right sized cookie cutters so I used my biscuit cutters which worked great. The reason for the four star rating is because my kids liked these but didn't feel they were good enough to add to the Christmas cookie list. Read More

I'm doing a somewhat keto diet to cut down on my carb intake so I did a cookie search with almond flour which got me here. That being said this recipe really wouldn't be keto approved BUT as a regular cookie I can see the seasonal possibilities. Dyeing the doughs red & green for Christmas pastel colors for Easter dark chocolate & orange for Halloween or for non seasonal reason like for school colors the list can go on and on. Read More
