How to Make Georgia's Almond Cookies


  • 1Preheat oven to 325. Lithtly spray cookie sheets with cooking spray and set aside.
  • 2Combine well the flour, baking soda, salt and sugar. Cut in the butter crisco (or regular shortening) until mixture resembles corn meal.
  • 3Mix remaining ingredients into flour mixture well. Shape dough into 1" balls. Place 2" apart on cookie sheet. Place a blanched almond half into top of each cookie if desired. I did not do this but this is your choice.
