                                                    Almond toasted butter cookies 

Looking for something that just pleases your taste buds and would force you to have one of those yummmm moments? Well here you go, a classic butter cookie recipe but with a perfect almondy twist.

Preparation time 15 minutes
Cooking time 15 minutes


  • 2 2/3 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter kept in room temperature 
  • 1/2 cup vegetable shortening
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup fine brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 1 teaspoon salt 
  • Finely cut almond flakes

Preheat the oven at 180 C and line a baking tray with baking sheet.Cream together the butter, vegetable shortening, sugar and egg until light and fluffy. Add the vanilla essence and the flour and make a dough. Form equal balls and press it in between your palms to give that disc shape. Place the almond flakes on top of each cookie and press it a bit so that it sticks to the cookie. Bake them for 10-15 minutes, until the sides of the cookies go a very light golden. Cool them in a cooling rack for at least 30-40 minutes before serving them with a nice cup of tea. Enjoy!!
