Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 1

4 Cup(s) All-Purpose Flour
3 Teaspoon(s) Cinnamon
1 Teaspoon(s) Ginger
1/2 Teaspoon(s) Salt
1 Teaspoon(s) Baking soda
1 Cup(s) Butter
2 Teaspoon(s) Instant coffee powder
1/2 Teaspoon(s) Almond extract
1 Cup(s) Granulated Sugar
1 Cup(s) Dark brown sugar, *
3 extra or jumbo eggs
10 Ounce(s) Slivered blanched almonds**
firmly packed ** (2 1/2 - 3 cups) These cookies go well with after
dinner coffee or tea. In a bowl, sift together the flour, cinnamon,
ginger, salt and baking soda and set aside. In a large bowl, cream
the butter. Add the coffee, almond extract, granulated and brown
sugars and beat well. Add the eggs one at a time until smooth after
each addition. On low speed gradually add the sifted dry ingredients,
scraping the bowl with a rubber spatula and beating only until the
mixture is smooth. Gently mix in the almonds. Spread out two pieces of
wax paper. place large spoonfuls of the dough lengthwise on each piece
of paper to form heavy strips about 10-11 inches long. Fold the long
sides of the paper p against the dough and, pressing against the paper
with your hands, shape each strip of dough into a smooth oblong 12
inches long, 3 inches wide, and about 1 inch thick. Wrap the dough in
the wax paper. Slide a cookie sheet under both packages of dough and
transfer them to the freezer or refrigerator for several hours or
overnight. This slices best when dough is frozen solid. Preheat oven
to 375ø. Unwrap one roll of dough at a time. Place dough on a cutting
board. With a very sharp knife cut the dough into 1/4-inch slices and
place them 1 to 1 1/2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake
the cookies for about 10-12 minutes at 375ø. The cookies are done
when they are slightly colored and spring back when lightly pressed
with a fingertip. Yield: 4 dozen. Larry Rosenberg, author of Muffins &
Cupcakes (published by The American Cooking Guild), Fairview, NJ.
