I got a new baking magazine this weekend, with all kinds of holiday baking ideas. There are some really great looking recipes. This one comes from that magazine.

First grind the almonds of hazelnuts (or both, like I used) and mix them with the flour. In another bowl, mix the butter and both sugars, add the salt and the egg.

Slowly add the flour.

Make balls of dough and place in muffin tins, flatten the middle with your thumb. And bake.

Add either nutella, peanut butter, or jam on top once they are cool.

1-1/2 sticks butter or margarine
3/4 cup sugar

1/4 cup brown sugar
1 egg
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup blanched, ground almonds or hazelnuts
1-1/2 teaspoons almond extract

Cream butter and sugars. Add egg, flour, ground almonds and almond extract. Mix together until crumbly. Let rest in refrigerator for 1 hour.
Butter (or spray) tins. Press dough into tins, forming a cup. Bake at 375º for 10 to 15 minutes or until light golden brown.
