Almond Amaretto Cookies
- *Spoon & Sweep method: Use a spoon to fill measuring cup with flour until required amount is obtained. Scooping measuring cup directly into flour bag will firmly pack flour resulting in too much flour required for recipe.
- Preheat oven to 350°F and line a sheet pan with parchment paper, set aside.
- In bowl of an electric mixer, add butter, 1/4 cup powdered sugar, and brown sugar. Cream together for about 2-3 minutes, until well combined.
- Add in flour and salt, mixing just until combined.
- Add in Amaretto liqueur, almond extract, and almonds. Mix until combined.
- Using a medium-sized cookie scoop (about 2 tablespoons of dough), scoop dough and gently roll into smooth balls. Place dough balls on prepared baking sheet, leaving about an inch between cookies for spreading.
- Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until bottoms are lightly browned and edges near bottom start to pick up a little color.
- Let cookies cool for 5 minutes and then toss in the remaining 1/2 cup powdered sugar.
- Serve immediately or let cool completely and store in an air-tight container for up to a week.
