almond crunch cookies recipes

  1. In a large mixing bowl, beat shortening, granulated sugar and brown sugar with an electric mixer on low speed until well combined. On medium speed, beat in eggs until combined. Add baking soda, vanilla and salt; beat well. Beat or stir in flour. Stir in almond pieces by hand.
  2. Divide dough into four portions. On a lightly floured surface, with lightly floured hands, roll each portion into a 12x1-1/2-inch log (dough will be soft).* Wrap and place logs of cookie dough on a cookie sheet; chill for 4 to 24 hours or freeze for 1 hour.
  3. Remove one log of dough from the refrigerator. Cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices and place on ungreased cookie sheets. Flatten cookies slightly with the bottom of a glass dipped in sugar.
  4. Bake in a 350° F oven for 8 to 10 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned. Cool on cookie sheet for 1 minute. Remove cookies and cool on a wire rack.

Note: If you like, omit rolling dough into logs. Chill portions of the dough for 2 hours or until easy to handle. Remove one portion of dough from the refrigerator. Roll it into 1-inch balls. Place 2 inches apart on cookie sheets. Flatten cookies and bake, as for slices.
