1/4 cup whole almonds (or 1/2 cup finely ground almonds)
2 tbsp skim milk
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup flour
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Roughly chop the 1/4 cup of whole almonds. Boil about some water; just enough water to cover the amount of almonds you have chopped. Boil the chopped almonds for 2 minutes. After the two minutes spoon the almonds out of the water and onto a paper towel. Let them sit for 5 minutes or so.
Take the almonds and chop them VERY finely. You could use a food processor for this. Take the butter and melt it in a sauce pan. Once the butter is melted, add the milk and vanilla extract, whisk to incorporate; then remove the pan from the burner. Add the butter mixture to the sugar. Then add the flour to the butter and sugar mixture. Lastly, add the finely chopped almonds to the mixture.
Use a teaspoon to scoop portion out the cookie mixture; make sure each cookie / teaspoon is a level teaspoon. The cookies will spread out a lot, so make sure there is at least 3 inches between the cookies and the pan walls. It is best to use parchment paper, but if you don't have any use a non-stick cooking spray.
Let each batch (I had 6 batches, 6 cookies per batch) cook for about 5-6 minutes. When the edges turn a deep golden brown the cookies are done.
