Homemade Almond Cookie Recipe

If you love almond flavors, then you are going to absolutely love these Triple Almond Cookies! They are packed full of tons of almond flavor. Almond extract, chopped almonds, and almond toffee bits. The house smelled amazing while the cookies were baking. We couldn’t wait to give them a try. We both had a really hard time controlling ourselves around these cookies. They are dangerously delicious! 

How to Make Almond Cookies

These cookies are easy to make with only a few simple ingredients. In a small bowl, whisk together all-purpose flour, baking soda, salt, and cream of tartar. Set aside. In the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat together unsalted butter, powdered sugar, and granulated sugar until light and fluffy. Add vegetable oil, eggs, and almond extract. Add dry ingredients to the butter mixture, mixing well. Stir in almonds and toffee bits.

Using a medium cookie scoop, scoop cookie dough and roll dough in granulated sugar. Place on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Flatten cookies in a criss-cross pattern with a fork dipped in granulated sugar. Bake cookies in a preheated oven until the edges are golden brown. Cool cookies on a wire rack.

Helpful Tips & Frequently Asked Questions

  • If you don’t have a stand mixer, you can use a handheld electric mixer or mix the cookie dough by hand.
  • One cup of all-purpose flour weighs 4.25-ounces. To properly measure flour, give the flour a stir to loosen it up in the container. Use a spoon and lightly spoon the flour into your measuring cup. Use a flat straight edge (like the straight back of a knife) to level off the top of the flour in the measuring cup. Do NOT compact the flour in the measuring cup.
  • Don’t have powdered sugar? Here is how to make your own powdered sugar with only two ingredients: https://www.plainchicken.com/homemade-powdered-sugar-2-ingredients/
  • For extra almond flavor drizzle the cookies with a quick powdered sugar and almond extract glaze.
  • Can I freeze cookies? Yes! You can freeze the cookies unbaked or baked.
    • To freeze the unbaked cookie dough, scoop the dough and place on a baking sheet. Place in the freezer until firm. Transfer cookie balls to a freezer bag and store them for up to 3 months.
      • There is no need to thaw the cookie dough before baking. Simply add a few minutes to the cooking time.
    • To freeze baked cookies, bake the cookies and cool them completely. Place cookies in a freezer bag and store in the freezer for up to 3 months.
  • Store cookies in an airtight container at room temperature.

Comments

  1. I live in Northern California. During the March lock down I made these for our neighborhood and were a huge success. Now I started making Xmas cookies, can I freeze them uncooked and throw them in the oven as needed. I saw a comment but there wasn’t an answer.
    Thank you – Happy Holidays

  2. I made these today and they were soooo good. They will be on my holiday cookie list to make every year.They will also be one of my surprise gift to my family and friends.

  3. I have a huge bag of sliced almonds leftover from Christmas in my freezer needing to be used. This is the perfect recipe to make for 4 teenage grandsons that coming over all the time!
