Ingredients (for 30-40 cookies)

  • 150 g / 5 oz brown sugar
  • 200 g / 7 oz butter (room temperature)
  • 1 medium egg
  • 300 g / 10 oz wheat flour type 405 (finely ground)
  • 100 g / 3,5 oz grounded almonds (almond flour)

  • 3 g / 0,1 oz baking powder
  • A pinch of salt


  1. Mix the flour with the baking powder and a bit of salt and set aside.
  2. In a separate bowl mix the eggs with sugar and vanilla extract (with a whisk or a mixer).
  3. Add brown sugar and continue mixing.
  4. Add softened butter in small pieces to the flour and mix in with a wooden stick or your hand.
  5. Add mixture of eggs and knead the dough with your hands, but not too long.
  6. Wrap in kitchen foil and set aside for 15-20 minutes, to allow the ingredients to blend (it already smells wonderful!).
  7. Preheat the oven to 170°C.
  8. Cut off a third of the dough and roll it out to a layer about half a centimeter thick.
  9. Cut out small cookies with a mold or a small cup.
  10. Place the cookies on a baking sheet lined with baking paper and bake in the oven for 10 minutes.
  11. Repeat the process until all the dough is used.
  12. Enjoy!
