Crumbly Almond Sugar Cookies

My job involves a lot. Of scrambled eggs. And poached eggs. And sometimes I see them when I close my eyes; I’m sure you’ve all had a job where that happens to you, and you find it difficult to re adjust when you get home. Baking helps! Like these cookies! They are extra crumbly (I wouldn’t ice them… :S) and just sweet enough 🙂

Almond Sugar Cookies
Ingredients:
100g butter
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg yolk
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup ground almonds

Instructions:
Preheat the oven to 170 degrees celsius and line a baking tray.

Soften the butter and beat with the sugar until pale, then mix in the egg yolk.  Mix in the flour and almonds, finishing mixing by hand, and chill for 10 minutes until you can work with it and roll it out.

Roll out the dough until about 4mm thick, on a lightly floured surface, and place on the tray. Bake for 20 minutes until lightly golden, and cool on the tray. It made about 20 for me, using two size cookie cutters 🙂
