Posted by patisseriejajaA great moist shortbread style cookies recipe. That is the one I always use and it is so good. Hope you will enjoy making cookies as much as I do!
- 1 cup sugar 3/4 cup butter 1 egg 3 tablespoon 35% cream 1 teaspoon almond extract 2 teaspoon baking powder 1/2 teaspoon salt
In a large bowl at medium speed cream together butter, sugar, egg, cream and almond extract until you get a light texture. Add the flour, the baking powder and the salt. You will have a great paste. Cover with a plastic (saranwrap) and refrigerate 1 hour until you get a firm texture. Roll down the paste 1/2cm thin. Bake for 4 to 6 minute (do not over cook) in a 400 degrees F (200 degrees Celcius) oven. Cool cookies than cover with you royal icing or buttercream. And enjoy!!!
