Servings 10 people

  • 2 cups Butter room temperature
  • 1/2 cup Powder Sugar
  • 1 shot Cognac
  • 1 Egg
  • 5 cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 3 cup Powder Sugar for coating
  • 3/4 cups Almonds chopped


  • Start off by adding a tablespoon of butter into a sauce pan and melt, add in the almonds stir until golden brown.
  • Powder Sugar
  • Flour mixed with baking powder
  • In a mixing bowl add in the butter and whip until fluffy, continue by adding in the rest of the ingredients.
  • Blend all ingredients until well combined. The mix should turn into a soft dough.
  • As you can see in the photo my mom shaped the cookies into half moons, and round cookies. Place cookies into baking pan and then into the oven and bake at 180 degrees until golden brown.
  • When cookies have baked, coat with powder sugar while they are still hot. The cookies should be fully covered with powder sugar.
