My Weekend of Baking
This weekend I made almond sandies, peach cobbler or pie, and rum cupcakes. Each turned out delicious! 

Almond Sandies Recipe

2/3 cup almonds or any nuts
2 sticks unsalted butter
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon almond extract
1-2/3 cup all-purpose flour
Pinch of salt
Powdered sugar for dusting

Grind the nuts finely in a food processor til it is finely ground. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar with a wooden spoon or mixer. Add the almond and vanilla extract. Add the flour, almonds, and pinch of salt. Mix until combined. Roll your dough into 1/2 inch balls and flatten. Line your cookie sheet with parchment paper and bake for 20 minutes. Sprinkle with powdered sugar! I will add pictures later. This is fun to make with kids cause you can make any shape you like.
