Iced Almond Log Cookies

The latest Baked and Delicious magazines have arrived, and I’m doing a log-shaped almond cookie for them for my weekly work bakes.

  • 175g unsalted butter
  • 75g caster sugar
  • 175g plain flour
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 125g ground almonds
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Mix the dry ingredients. Cream butter & sugar, then beat in vanilla extract. Mix in the dry ingredients.

Split into 30g balls, and form each into a log shape. Chill on baking sheets while the oven heats to 150C fan.

Bake for 20 minutes, turning half way through. Cool on a wire rack.

Huh. Despite chilling, which wasn’t in the recipe, they spread and turned into ovals. Hardly what was advertised! I wonder where I went wrong?

Anyway…

Decorate with water icing. I’m going to use a squeezy bottle to do this, and make an effort to make it neat for a change!

Well I’m happy with the icing, and the taste… I just wish I knew why they didn’t stay as logs like the magazine showed.
