Almond Meltaway Cookies


Another recipe I found on Pinterest and this is a keeper.

It is from the Novice Chef and she is a genius.

Sometimes you don’t need a million ingredients for a great recipe.

2 cups flour

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature

3/4 cup sugar

1 large egg

2 teaspoon almond extract


1 cup powdered sugar

1 tablespoon milk or water

1 1/2 teaspoon almond extract

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat.

Mix the four, baking powder and salt together and set aside.

Cream the butter, add the sugar and mix till fluffy.

Add the egg and almond extract.

Mix well.

Add the flour mixture till a soft dough is formed.

I like small cookies so I take about 3/4 to 1 teaspoon of dough and roll it into a ball. Place it on a cookie sheet and flatter slightly with your fingers.

Make a small well in the cookies with the back of a spoon.

Bake for only 8 minutes.

They don’t look cooked but they are. Leave on the pan for another five minutes.

Cool completely.

Mix the powdered sugar, almond extract and milk. It is nice and smooth.

Place about 1/4 teaspoon of icing on each cookies and carefully spread. Do not go over the edges of the cookies.

Keep in the refrigerator.

These really do melt in your mouth.

Thank you Novice Chef
