    INGREDIENTS:

    * 2 cups flour
    * 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    * 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    * 1/8 teaspoon salt
    * 1/2 cup butter
    * 1/2 cup shortening
    * 3/4 cup white sugar (can add up to 2 more tablespoons, if desired)
    * 2 eggs
    * 2 1/2 teaspoons almond extract
    * 1/4 pound whole, blanched almonds (one for each cookie)
    * 1 egg, lightly beaten

    PREPARATION:
    1.Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit (162.5 degrees Celsius).
    2.In a large bowl, sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a medium bowl, use an electric mixer to beat the butter or margarine, shortening, and sugar. Add the eggs and almond extract and beat until well blended. Add to the flour mixture and mix well. The dough will be very dry and crumbly at this point, but don’t worry – that is what it’s supposed to be like.
    3. Use your fingers to form the mixture into a dough, and then form the dough into 2 rolls or logs that are 10 to 12 inches long. Wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours (this will make it easier to shape the dough into circles).
    4. Take a log and lightly score the dough at 3/4 inch intervals so that you have 15 pieces and cut the dough. Roll each piece into a ball and place on a lightly greased cookie tray, approximately 1 1/2 inches apart. Place an almond in the center of each cookie and press down lightly. Repeat with the remaining dough.
    5. Brush each cookie lightly with beaten egg before baking. Bake for 15 minutes to 18 minutes, until golden brown. Cool and store in a sealed container.

    Chinese Almond Cookies

    Ingredients
    About 1 cup (1/2 lb.) butter or margarine, at room temperature
    1 cup sugar
    1 large egg
    1/2 teaspoon almond extract
    2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1 large egg yolk
    1 tablespoon milk
    1/3 cup blanched whole almonds
    2 tablespoons sesame seeds

    Preparation
    1. In a large bowl, with a mixer on medium speed, beat 1 cup butter and sugar until smooth. Add whole egg and almond extract and beat until well blended. Add flour and baking powder; stir to mix, then beat until well blended.

    2. Shape dough into 1-inch balls, flatten each slightly, and place about 1 inch apart on buttered 12- by 15-inch baking sheets.

    3. In a small bowl, beat egg yolk with milk to blend. Brush cookies lightly with egg mixture; discard any remaining. Press an almond into the center of each cookie and sprinkle with about 1/8 teaspoon sesame seeds.

    4. Bake cookies in a 325° regular or convection oven until lightly browned, 15 to 20 minutes; if baking two sheets at once in one oven, switch their positions halfway through baking. Let cookies cool on sheets for 5 minutes, then use a wide spatula to transfer to racks to cool completely.
