Almond Flour Sand-dollar Cookies

Almonds are rich in proteins and are good for skin too. This recipe uses more almond flour than all purpose flour. Its a great alternative to regular cookies with all-purpose flour. It is like eating badam katli in the form of a cookie. Kids will be excited to eat a cookie and hence this is a great option to give to a picky eater. also, we have reduced our intake of sugar. This cookie is a reduced sweet version but you will not feel that at all. Just a bite of a cookie, will make you take another one. This one is better than the Good Day biscuits. As a kid loved to eat those cookies. Making a better version of it, is the most ideal substitute. We love this cookie and make this for many years. Participating in Bake-A-thon 2020 made me post one of the most used recipe of ours. 

This recipe is very special and we call it as a sand dollar cookie. We made this as a sand dollar cookie for one the birthday party. It was a beach/ summer themed one. Rolling in sugar and pressing the slices of almond gave the sand dollar look. We loved it. One of our family friend's cutie pie stayed with us that night and helped us make the birthday cake and these cookies. We ended up making delicious cookies as well as memories that we cherish everyday and forever. 


Makes 24 cookies

Almond flour - 1.5 cups

All-purpose flour - 1/2 cup

Vanilla - 1 tsp

Brown sugar - 2/3 cup

Butter - 6 tbsp

Flaxseed powder - 1 tbsp

Milk - 2 tbsp

Granulated sugar - 3-4 tbsp

Almond slices - 2-3 tbsp


In a bowl, add the flax seed powder and milk Keep aside. In another bowl add the almond four, salt, baking powder, all purpose flour, mix well. In another bowl, cream the butter and brown sugar. Add the flax seed mix and vanilla, and beat till fluffy. Add the dry ingredients in instalments and mix thoroughly. Preheat the oven to 350degrees F.

With a cookie scoop, make 24 equal sized portions. Roll it on sugar crystals. Keep them on a silicone lined baking tray. Flatten them. Press a couple of almond slices gently onto the cookie. Bake for 10min. If you want a softer cookie, make sure to take it out by 8 min. 

Store in airtight container.


This cookie can be made without rolling in sugar and adding almond slices. It is perfect and delicious in that way too.
