Italian Almond Cookies


  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon almond flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/3 cup + 1 1/2 tablespoon butter* (softened)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla**
  • *I use salted butter, if you use unsalted then add 1/4 teaspoon of salt.
  • **You can substitute with almond flavouring or use both, if you like a stronger flavour add 1 teaspoon.


  1. In a large bowl whisk together the flours and sugar then make a well in the middle and add the egg yolk, butter and vanilla, mix with a fork until almost combined. This dough is also very easy to make with a Food Processor.
  2. Move to a lightly floured flat surface and knead into a compact ball, wrap in plastic and refrigerate for one hour.
  3. Pre-heat oven to 350 F (180C) and line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  4. Remove the dough from the fridge and on a lightly floured flat surface roll into a 1/4 inch (1/2 cm) thick rectangle, with your favourite cookie cutter cut out cookies (I used mini cutters and got a lot of cookies, the first photo I used a medium round cutter and I got 15 cookies).
  5. Place cookies on prepared cookie sheet and bake for approximately 6 minutes (for mini cookies) approximately 8 – 10 minutes for larger. Do not let the cookies brown.  Let cool on cookie sheet, then dust with powdered / icing sugar.  Enjoy!
