Easy Almond Cookie Delights

An Almond Cookie

1 egg

1 cup sugar

2 1/2 teaspoons almond extract

1/2 cup margarine, melted

1 cup flour

Sliced or whole almonds for decoration


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8” round pan and line with parchment paper (optional). If you prefer you can grease a mini muffin tin.


Beat the egg until fluffy. Add the sugar and beat until blended. Add the almond extract and margarine, then slowly mix in the flour. Your batter will be thick and smooth.  


If you are using the round pan, pour in the batter and sprinkle the top with the sliced almonds, or place whole almonds strategically where you will later make the cuts. 


If you are using the muffin tins, you can place one whole almond on each muffin or sprinkle on the sliced almonds. 


Bake at 350F for about 30 minutes or until lightly browned.


Slice when cooled (for the round pan). The little almond “muffins” can be turned out of the pan right away.


Though this recipe is really easy to make, the results are special. 

Mini Muffin Pans

Another Option for Making This Almond Cookie Recipe

These Min Muffin pans are perfect for making this almond cookie recipe. They'd be great to have around the house if you were making cup cakes, too, as each cup cake would be so small, they'd have practically no calories. (Okay, that's a stretch, but they'd have less calories than a large cup cake would!)

And, of course, these mini muffin pans are great for making muffins, too.

Although I've never used the silicone bakeware, I've been told they work really well. I'm thinking they'd be interesting to try, and they come in such bright colors!

I have the Baker's Secret 12 cup muffin tin. When I've made the almond cookie recipe, I've sometimes doubled the recipe and used both an eight inch round pan and a 12 cup mini muffin pan. I suppose you could double the recipe and use a 24 cup mini muffin pan instead.

I like having the option of the different types of pans. When baked in the round pan, the almond cookie is moist and almost melts in your mouth. When I made this almond cookie recipe at Christmas time along with several other cookies and pies -- I guess I overdid it -- we had some left a week later and they reminded us of a biscotti -- perfect for dunking in your tea or coffee.

Now just because I said there were still some almond cookie delights a week later doesn't mean they were unpopular with my family. It's just that I made them ahead and put them away until Christmas day. The almond cookie recipe was the one my son was determined to take with him when he went back to his home.

I've added a standard cookie sheet, too, because you may decide to try baking these cookies by dropping them from a spoon onto a cookie sheet. I haven't tried this method myself yet, but I plan to try it next time I make up this batter. As long as you keep the baking time short, I can't see why this method wouldn't work.
