Almond Raisin Cookie

I have never made cookies from scratch and I have a taste for something that's kind of made up. It's an almond raisin cookie. I'm pretty sure that there is a recipe that can be adapted to make this cookie so if anyone has any suggestions please let me know

  • I found this on a recipe site...you could certainly add raisins to it. Let me know what the cookie is like and I can try to figure it out...soft or crisp, whole almonds or ground, etc.... I'm sending it in 2 parts.

  • Almond Cookies
    Preparation:
    Stir together flour, ground almonds, baking powder, and salt; set aside.
    In a mixing bowl cream butter and sugar at medium speed of electric hand held mixer. Beat in egg white and almond extract.

    Stir flour and ground almond mixture into the creamed mixture. Cover with plastic wrap; chill for about 2 hours.

    Shape dough into small balls, about 3/4-inch. Place balls 2 inches apart; flatten slightly with the bottom of a glass. Press an almond into the center of each cookie. Bake at 350° for about 12 minutes, or until set but not browned.

    Makes about 4 dozen almond cookies
