Christmas Baking

December 23, 2005


  • 6 hard boiled egg yolks, mashed.
  • 3/4  pound softened butter (3 sticks)
  • 3/4  cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon almond flavoring
  • 2 1/2 cups flour (sifted)
  • 1/2 cup ground almond meal (if not available increase regular flour to 3 cups)

Cream butter, adding sugar gradually. Add egg yolks and almond flavoring. Add flour and almond meal slowly, mixing well, but DO NOT OVERKNEAD.

Using a cookie shooter, press dough about 2 inches across onto a silicon or parchment-lined baking sheet. Press an almond, small chocolate morsel or 1/2 a maraschino cherry in the center of each one. Bake at 400 degrees until the edges are JUST brown, 10-12 minutes. Any more than that, and they are overbaked. Makes six dozen cookies

    Remember Jane – It only uses the yolks of the hard cooked eggs.
