What do you think? Is it a cookie or a biscuit? Tastes like a cookie, but looks like a little biscuit. Can't really be a biscotti because it isn't crisp on the inside and is only baked once. So I shall call this a biscookie. A hybrid of the two.
I made these to inaugurate the new cooling racks that I had won from a giveaway from Evil Shenanigans as you may have seen in my post the other day. I also needed to use up some leftover almond slices I had in the pantry.
A subtle hint on cinnamon with a taste of almond. Goes well with a cup of joe and/or a cold glass of moo juice.
Cinnamon Almond Biscookie
1/2 c butter or margarine
1/3 c sugar
1 1/2 c cake Flour
1 Tbsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 c Almond slices
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
Preheat oven 350˚F
Sift together flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.
In a bowl, cream together butter and sugar. Then beat in egg and add the vanilla. Add in the flour mixture and mix well.
Then mix in the almonds. Divide into 12 equal rounds and place on a lightly greased baking sheet.
Bake for 12-15 min.
