Almond Cookies

We started a family Alphabet game. Once a week, we pick an alphabet and do things that correspond with that. Last friday, we did "A". We ate Almond Cookies, watched "Alvin and the Chipmunks" and read "Aladdin". You would be seeing more posts in my blog now. So, here's the Almond Cookies that I made which became an instant hit. (I wouldn't be surprised if my kids want to repeat an "A" twice a month...


Butter - 1 cup
Almond extract - 1/2 tsp
Powdered sugar - 3/4 Cup
Flour - 2 Cups
Salt - 1/2 tsp
Oats, uncooked - 1 Cup
Almonds, finely chopped - 1/2 Cup


1. Heat oven to 325 degrees F.

2. Beat butter and almond extract until fluffy; gradually beat in sugar.

3. Add combined flour and salt; mix well.

4. Stir in oats and almonds.

5. Shape to form round balls and press them firmly till they are flat.

6. Place on ungreased cookie sheet.

7. Bake 15-18 minutes or until light golden brown.


  1. Your almond cookies look fabulous! I should start the ABC game here at my house as every weekend we get my 2 nephews (ages 8 and 10) and that would be fun to do with them.

  2. It is loads of fun, believe me!
