This week we made Tea Cookies. They are not chocolate, but I still love them.
2 sticks of butter, softened
2 tsp almond extract
2/3 C. brown sugar
2 egg yolks (save the egg whites)
2 2/3 C. flour
Mix all ingredients together. Dough can be refrigerated and cookies made later. Roll into small balls, place on cookie sheets, press with thumb and brush with egg whites. Fill thumbprint with strawberry jam, and sprinkle with chopped nuts.
Bake at 350 for about 10 minutes. This recipe makes about three dozen cookies.
Of course they are yummy with tea!
