INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 cup (120g) all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup (75g) almond flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup (170g) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup (100g) granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup (50g) firmly packed light or dark brown sugar
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract sliced almonds, for topping the cookies

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone liners.
  2. Whisk together the flour, almond flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  3. Using an electric mixer on medium speed, beat the butter, sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Mix in the egg yolk and almond extract.
  4. Reduce mixer speed to low. Gradually add the flour mixture, mixing just until combined.
  5. Drop the dough by tablespoonfuls onto the prepared pans, leaving about 3 inches between cookies. Flatten each cookie to about 1/2-inch thick.
  6. Sprinkle the top of each cookie with sliced almonds.
  7. Bake, one pan at a time, 12 to 14 minutes, or until the edges of the cookies are lightly browned and the tops appear set.
  8. Cool on the pans for 5 minutes. Then transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.
