After our Holiday Open House, I had numerous request for our “Almond Balls” recipe. The recipe is from Billie McLeod. She is a wonderful cook and a great family friend. These cookies are wonderful and perfect for the upcoming holidays.
1 cup softened butter (not margarine)
2 cups plain flour
1 tsp. almond flavoring
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup ground almonds
powdered sugar for dipping
Cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Add all other ingredients and mix until well combined. Roll 1 tsp. of dough into a ball. Place on a greased cookie sheet and bake at 325 degrees for 25 minutes or until light brown. Cool 25-30 minutes. Put powdered sugar in a bowl and dip cookie balls in sugar until well coated. Store in a tight container. Makes 4-5 dozen cookies. Enjoy!
