¾ cup sugar
1 Land O Lakes® All-Natural Egg
1 teaspoon almond extract
2¼ cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
48 whole blanched almonds
1 Land O Lakes® All-Natural Egg, yolk
1 tablespoon water

Directions

Heat oven to 350°F. Combine butter and sugar in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add egg and almond extract; beat until well mixed. Reduce speed to low; add flour, baking powder and salt. Beat until well mixed.
Shape dough into 1 1/4-inch balls. Place 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten slightly; press almond into center of each cookie.
Beat egg yolk with water in small bowl; brush cookies with egg mixture. Bake for 11 to 15 minutes or until just set. .
Recipe Tip
** These cookies were traditionally made with lard in China because pork is plentiful. We”ve changed to butter instead for a richer flavor and slightly crisper texture. Far more flavorful than the fortune cookie, keep them on hand, baked and ready, in your freezer.
