Method

Step 1


Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease cookie sheets (baking trays). Blanch almonds in two cups of hot water for ten minutes. Drain and peel.

Step 2


Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a bowl. Sieve the mixture. Cream butter and sugar in mixing bowl until light.

Step 3


Add one egg and beat until light and fluffy. Beat in almond and vanilla essences. Gradually add dry ingredients and knead lightly to make a dough. Beat the remaining egg lightly.

Step 4


Divide the dough into one and a quarter inch diameter balls. Arrange them two inches apart on prepared cookie sheets. Flatten each slightly with the palm of the hand and brush lightly with the beaten egg.

Step 5


Gently press an almond in the center of each cookie. Bake in the preheated oven for ten to twelve minutes at 350°F or until golden brown.

Step 6


Cool on racks and serve.
