Roasted Almond White Chocolate Cookies
- ½ cup butter softened, 1 stick
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 egg room temperature
- ½ teaspoon almond extract
- ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1.5 cups gluten-free all-purpose flour
- ¼ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
- 1 cup white chocolate chips
- 1 cup almonds roasted and chopped
Heat the oven to 400 degrees.
Spread almonds on a baking sheet and roast in the oven 5 minutes until they look a little puffed out
Roughly chop almonds using a knife or pulse them in a food processor. Set aside.
In a mixing bowl or mixer, cream together the sugars and butter.
Add the egg, vanilla extract and almond extract and mix just until combined.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt and cardamom.
Slowly add the flour to the egg/butter/sugar mixture and mix until combined.
Fold in the white chocolate chips and roasted almonds.
Heat oven to 350 degrees
Optional: Allow dough to sit for 15 minutes. I do this with all of my dough (and pancake batter), but you don’t need to do this if you’re in a hurry.
Form dough balls and place on a lightly oiled or parchment-lined baking sheet.
Bake for 11-13 minutes
