Almond Extract Cookies - Cinnamon Almond Coffee Cookies
Cinnamon Almond Coffee Cookies

These cookies are simple to make and have a rich taste that is sure to please. I use small cookie stamps when making these cookies, but you can just press down with a fork to make a criss cross pattern.

1/4 cup softened unsalted butter
1/2 cup sugar
4 tablespoons Amaretto
1 egg
2 cups flour
1 1/2 tablespoons instant coffee granules
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cream the butter and 1/2 cup sugar in a large bowl until light and fluffy. Add the Amaretto and the egg and mix well. In a small bowl whisk together the flour, coffee, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, and salt. Slowly mix the flour mixture into the butter mixture until thoroughly incorporated. On a small plate mix together the 2 tablespoons sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Shape the dough into 1 inch balls and roll in the sugar mixture. Place the balls 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet and flatten with a cookie stamp or fork. Bake for 6-8 minutes, or until lightly browned. Immediately remove from the pan and cool completely on wire racks. Store in an airtight container or freeze.
