Secret Ingredients
  • 1 cup butter (room temperature)
  • 1/2 cup sugar (granulated)
  • 1 large egg (separated, yolk for dough, reserve whites and beat for brushing tops)
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 1/2 cups sifted flour (start with 2 1/4 cups, may need up to 2 1/2 cups of flour)
  • Sugar, for sprinkling (I use the white granulated, you may use tinted sugar)
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Using an electric beater beat butter and sugar - I beat until nice and fluffy.
  3. Add egg yolk and almond extract; beat well.
  4. Add 2 1/4 cups of the sifted sifted flour over the butter mixture with wooden spoon or mixer on low.( a wooden spoon works best for me) thoroughly incorporate the flour and form dough into a ball.
  5. NOTE: if dough is too sticky add 2 - 4 tablespoons flour - chill dough before moulding ( I cover bowl and chill in the fridge for 1/2 an hour) a chilled baking pan makes forming cookies much easier.
  6. If using cookie press, press on sheet, wait a few seconds, then twist the press slightly as you lift it straight up.
  7. NOTE: if dough is too stiff to press out beat another egg yolk into the dough - (moulding by hand you may need to use all of the 2 1/2 cups flour - flour hands lightly makes moulding by hand easier).
  8. If you don't have a cookie press form into 1/2 inch balls - push a cherry into the centre.
  9. Brush cookies with beaten egg white and sprinkle with sugar; bake at 350 for 8 - 12 minutes or until golden around the edges.
  10. Cool on a wire rack.Yield will vary as to size of cookies.
