Butter Almond Meltaways are light, delicate, melt in your mouth cookies. Good luck eating just one!
I have told you of my chocolate obsession before, it’s a very real “problem”. However, there are certain desserts I will make an exception for, and this is one of them. I honestly think it’s impossible to eat just one. They are light, and simple, but boy, are they ever delicious!
Every time I make these, they are gobbled up fast! I watched my nieces shovel in one after another until nothing was left but a few crumbs.
People say sometimes the simple things are the best things, and that is certainly true when it comes to these cookies. They are so light and buttery with a sweet almond flavor, and they seriously melt in your mouth. Hence the name.
When you bake these cookies you will notice the color doesn’t really change. They do not turn golden to let you know they are done. They also do not change their shape much while baking, so you want to make nice round discs out of the dough when placing them on the baking sheet. Stick to the 6-7 minute baking time to achieve a nice tender cookie. Over bake them and they will be dry and crunch. That is not what you want.
The icing on these hardens once dry, making them perfect for packing in lunches…or hiding a few in your purse for snacking while running errands 😉
