Rolled Almond Vanilla Cookies Recipe

Rolled Almond Vanilla Cookies Recipe

I love baking dozens and dozens of Christmas cookies every holiday season. I especially enjoy making rolled cookies that I cut with my ever-growing collection of cookie cutters. In addition to my butter cookies and sugar cookies, this year I added a new recipe to baking bonanza. My rolled almond vanilla cookies are light and crispy, perfect with a hot cup of coffee or cocoa on a cold winter day.


  • 1 cup of white sugar
  • 1 cup of softened butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon of almond extract
  • 3 cups of whole wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons of baking soda


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°.
  2. Add the sugar, butter, egg, vanilla extract, and almond extract to a large mixing bowl.
  3. Combine thoroughly.
  4. Combine the baking soda and whole wheat flour in a separate bowl.
  5. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients.
  6. Roll the dough in a fourth-inch sheet on a floured surface.
  7. Cut the dough using holiday cookie cutters.
  8. Place the cookies on an ungreased or parchment-lined cookie sheet.
  9. Place the cookie sheet in the freezer for 10 minutes.
  10. Bake the cookies for 9 to 11 minutes or until lightly browned.
  11. Allow the cookies to cool slightly before removing from the baking sheet.
  12. Store the rolled almond vanilla cookies in an airtight container.
