Melt the butter in a pot with a light colored bottom so that you can see when it begins to brown.

Directions

  • 1 Melt the butter in a small pan over medium heat. Continue cooking, watching constantly, until butter foams, becomes a delicate golden color and has a nutty aroma (from 3-8 minutes). Remove immediately from heat and let cool completely, about 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
  • 2 Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with wax paper (parchment paper).
  • 3 Combine the flour and almonds in a medium bowl. Set aside.
  • 4 Mix the browned butter, sugar, egg and almond extract in a large bowl using an electric mixer on medium speed. Beat until well blended. Reduce the speed to low and continue whisking. Add the flour little by little, until well blended.
  • 5 Form dough balls about 1 inch thick with your hands. Dip one side of the dough balls in the coarse sugar and apply a bit of pressure. Place on baking sheet and gently flatten them with a fork.
  • 6 Bake for 12-15 minutes or until lightly browned.
  • 7 Remove from baking sheet and cool.
