Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter (2 sticks), at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 1/2 cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup almond flour (almond meal)
  • 1/2 cup coarse sugar (optional)

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.

Expert Tips

  • If the dough feels too dry, add 1 or 2 tablespoons of water to make it softer.
  • Melt the butter in a pot with a light colored bottom so that you can see when it begins to brown.
