Today’s Christmas cookie is Cherry Almond Crinkles. These are very different from the cookies I have baked so far this season. I love almond cookies and marzipan. The cherries in these add just the right texture and complimentary flavor. They are pretty easy to make too.
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp almond extract
- 2 cups flour
- 1/2 cup chopped maraschino cherries, patted dry
- Preheat oven to 350.
- In a medium bowl, beat butter and sugar for 30 seconds.
- Add baking powder, baking soda and salt. Combine.
- Add egg and almond extract. Mix until combined.
- Add four.
- Add cherries.
- Bake for 10 minutes.
The gingerbread baking also continues… My house sure smells good lately.
So, I am wondering, have you tried any of my recipes? What did you think?
