Almond Cookies Recipe | Cooking with Dog

Hi, I’m Francis, the host of this show “Cooking with Dog.” First, let’s make the cookie dough. Whip the butter in a bowl with a hand-mixer until creamy. Add the extra fine sugar and mix. Turn on the mixer and whip until it lightens in color. Then, add the beaten egg a little at a time while mixing. If the egg and butter separate, try adding a small amount of the cake flour. This may fix the separation but be sure not to use more than the total amount of flour later. Add the vanilla extract and continue to mix. Next, in a mesh strainer, combine the cake flour, almond powder and a pinch of salt. Sieve the powder into the bowl. Combine the mixture with a rubber spatula using a slashing motion. Once it is evenly moistened, put the dough into a large food storage bag. Flatten the dough with your hands. Then, roll it into a 3mm (0.1”) thick sheet evenly using a rolling pin. Run a finger along both sides of the bag so that you can easily cut the edges off later. Now, the cookie dough has firmed up. Trim off both the left and right edges of the bag. Peel off the plastic. Coat the pastry cutter with flour and divide the sheet into rectangular pieces. Like shown, mark the grid pattern on the sheet so that you can easily cut it into equal pieces. Trim off the edges of the dough. The size of each cookie is 8.5cm by 2.5cm (3.3”x1”) and you’ll get 18 pieces from the sheet in total. Now, using a kitchen brush, coat the top of the dough with the beaten egg. Then, place 3 almond slices on top of each piece. Place the cookies onto a baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Next, coat your hands with flour. Gather the leftover dough and shape it into a flat circle. Coat a poodle-shaped cutter with flour and then cut out the dough. If the dough is too soft to shape, chill it in the fridge or freezer to harden. Place the poodle-shaped dough onto the baking sheet. And coat it with the beaten egg. Place the baking sheet into the oven. Bake the cookies at 160°C (320°F) for about 11 minutes. Now, they’re ready. Remove the almond cookies from the oven. Mmmmm. They smell so good! Place the cookies onto a cooling rack. When the baking sheet is cooled, you can bake the rest of the cookie dough as well. These almond cookies are relatively thin and they are perfect for making cookie sandwiches. We’re planning to make popular Raisin Sandwhich Cookies in the future. We recommend using the extra fine sugar to help it combine with the butter. Good luck in the kitchen!

  1. I wonder how many people will bother with that precise measuring of the pieces 😀 Anyway, looks delicious af.

  2. These look just like some my Grandmother used to make. Her recipes were all in her head. I am going to try this as soon as I can. Thank you very much.

  3. i LOVE this channel but the english narrator is killing me!! Is he indian or something? I wish you can just speak Japanese and have the english CC, that'll be perfect, cuz the narrator is killing me with the way he speaks.

  4. The tip of running your fingers along the edge of the bag so you can cut it later is very helpful!! Thank you for a great recipe! This looks perfect for breakfast coffee, and I appreciate that this doesn't make a huge batch too 🙂

  5. hi Francis! can I use coconut flour or almond meal instead of cake flour?  Some of my family members can only take gluten free food

  6. I have tried a few of Frances' recipes now and they are delicious! The various Japanese noodle dishes are scrumptious! Found this segment by chance and subscribed. Question,how do yiu keep the dog so well behaved Frances?

  7. What exactly is 1/2 a beaten egg? Like just add half of an egg? I feel like that's a little weird to measure out

  8. Great recipe as always, but I have to ask, what is that song that begins around 5:06?  Is it a Macy Gray number??

  9. This looks so delicious, I'm definitely going to try making it! Francis and chef, could you make a dessert with pomegranate in it?

  10. My grandmother used to make them for Christmas according to old Czech recipe which is really similar to yours…I love these cookies! 🙂

  11. I'm a huge fan of cooking with dog. I liked her and doggy.  All recipes are so delicious and easy making. Last time I cooked Udon with steam eggs and the desserts, caramel custard…are so delicious, and always come out good. Its a good relaxing for me to cook with her.  Thanks for sharing sister 🙂

  12. いつもフランシスくんのビデオを観ています!質問ですけど、もしアーモンドパウダーを使ってないままこのクッキを作るのが大丈夫でしょうか、それとも何か代わりに入れて、作ることができますか。

  13. omg i love these as a child, got them from the asian super market. Lately i've been SERIOUSLY craving the canned fried dace in black bean oil along with chinese sausage but i can't drive and im like 12 miles away from the nearest asian super market.

  14. Hi Chef! Can you please share what brand oven you use? It's small and portable and perfect since I do not have an actual oven 🙂 thank you!! ^^*

  15. I tried this recipe for x-mas and they didn't come out looking/tasting nearly as nice but where still alright. That might be my fault do to the fact my scale was broken and I had to try to convert things to cups which was slightly difficult and I think I was off on certain things. That played a huge part in them not holding their shape. The flavor in my opinion was more sugar cookie than almond. Next time I think a little bit of almond extract would help immensely. Will try again with my scale and report back what I find.

  16. Hello,
    I followed your recipe exactly but my cookies turned out flat and solid like hard shortbread and not fluffy like yours. Can you tell me why? Thank you.

  17. Love the recipes ! Thank you ! Can you please show us some baking recipes with black sesame seeds.

  18. I just made these. They remind me of English biscuits. They are perfect for morning coffee.

    I do not have my small oven like her's set up. In a regular sized range my cookies took longer. Make sure to place cookies about 6-8inches from the bottom.

  19. If you have not already, can you make a video about all the tools you use in cooking and their brand? I would be very happy if you make one! 😬 (Unless you are too busy right now!)

  20. Made these today. Very delicious cookies indeed, thank you! Will you still be doing the Raisin Sandwich Cookies recipe, please?

  21. Thank you so much!! Watched this and made it and my family loved it!!! The only thing is i baked for an extra 5 minutes to let the cookies brown

  22. Aww, the dog wants to go down! I love my animals so much for sure, but I wldn't want them next to my food where their fur cld fly in!
    He's so beautiful though!
