Greek Almond cookies 希臘杏仁餅乾

Holiday Greek almond cookies that are good to enjoy anytime! 

200g of butter, soften

About 2 cups of icing sugar 
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 tablespoon of rosewater (optional, you can also replace it with orange blossom water or 1 teaspoon of finely grated orange rind) 
1 egg yoke
Some flour, about 1 cup (all purpose or cake flour)
150g (about 1/2 cup) of almond powder.

  • Beat butter and 2 tablespoons of sugar together until creamy.
  • Bland in vanilla extract, egg yoke and rosewater and almond powder.
  • Start with 1/2 cup of flour, work the butter mixture into a dough until it won't stick to the hands but soft enough to break it by hand.
  • Take about a tablespoon of dough and roll it into a ball then press it down gently or work it into a crescent shape.
  • Bake 160 C for 15-18 min.
  • Wait until the cookies cooled (30 minutes will do).  Roll them with powder sugar.
