How to Make Georgia's Almond Cookies


  1. Preheat oven to 325. Lithtly spray cookie sheets with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. Combine well the flour, baking soda, salt and sugar. Cut in the butter crisco (or regular shortening) until mixture resembles corn meal.
  3. Mix 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.
  4. Bake at 325 for 16-18 minutes. Keep in mind that ovens vary so check them at 8 minutes and go from there.
