Chinese Almond Cookies
adapted from Allrecipes.com, submitted by Wishme
1 c. + 3 T. vegetable shortening
1 c. sugar
2 t. almond extract
2 1/2 c. flour
1/2 t. baking soda
pinch of salt
Place shortening and sugar in the large bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Beat until well combined. Add the egg and almond extract, continue to beat until light and fluffy. Add the flour, baking soda and salt. Mix on lowest setting until combined and then increase speed, beating until well mixed.
Using a small (about 1 Tablespoon) cookie scoop, form the dough into balls and place on parchment lined baking sheets. Press an almond into the center of each cookie, pressing down slightly. Bake in a preheated 350* oven for 15 minutes or until lightly golden brown on the bottoms. Print Recipe
