Delicious crunchy nutty almond cookies that are made mostly from healthy almonds. Naturally gluten free and dairy free.


Units Scale
  • 2 cups blanched slivered almonds
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • Zest from 1 lemon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 24 roasted salted almonds to top cookies (or use any type of almond you like)


  1. Set an oven rack in the center position. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Lightly oil a baking sheet.
  2. Put almonds in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the chopping blade. Process for 15-20 seconds or until they are finely ground. Add the sugar, egg, lemon and salt to the bowl of the food processor and pulse 20-25 times, until the mixture becomes sticky and holds together.

  4. Bake in the center of the oven for 16 minutes. Cool cookies on pan for 5 minutes. Transfer cookies to wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
