Almond flavored Spice Cookies

You don't need any Almonds to make these cookies but you could add a few if you like. I have tried them with and without and the nuts give them a crunch which I think we all like. It also makes the cookies last a little longer when eating them, which makes it seem as if we are eating more.

Almond Spice Cookies


1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup egg substitute (2 lg. eggs beaten)
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1 + 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon each ground cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
Pinch salt
1/2 cup chopped almonds


In a bowl, cream butter and sugar; add egg substitute and extract. Combine dry ingredients; add to the creamed mixture. Stir in almonds. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto baking sheets coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 9-11 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Remove to wire racks to cool. Yield: 5 dozen.

  1. I wonder if using almond meal/flour (seen it called both) in place of the all purpose flour here would be a good addition to this recipe? It would lower total carbs, but I'm not sure if the flavor would be better or worse. Just a thought...

  2. Don't see any reason to do that as it is already under the 15g we are allowed for snacks. But I may try it to reduce the carbs so we can have more per serving. May try soy flour too... Thanks for the suggestion and for taking your time to visit. Would love to hear how any recipe you change comes out.
