Traditional cookie from the city of Bremen, Germany.

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg
1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2/3 cup whipping cream
2 teaspoons sugar
1 cup sliced almonds

In large bowl with an electric mixer, beat butter and the 1 cup sugar until creamy; add vanilla and egg and beat until smooth. In another bowl, stir together flour and baking powder; add to butter mixture, blending thoroughly. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or until next day. Preheat oven to 325F. Roll dough into 1-inch balls and place 3 inches apart on greased baking sheets. Grease bottom of a glass, dip in sugar, and flatten each ball to a thickness of about 1/4 inch. In a 2-quart pan, bring cream and the 2 teaspoons sugar to a boil; continue to boil until reduced by half. Remove from heat and stir in almonds. Spread 1 teaspoon of the almond mixture on top of each cookie. Bake in a 325 oven for 12 to 15 minutes or until
golden brown. Transfer cookies to racks and let
cool. Store airtight.

Would not make this again.
The texture of these reminds me of Snickerdoodles. They had a weird aftertaste probably from the baking powder which I think is a lot for the amount of flour. Have had much better cookies than these. 1 star

This is a very unique, delicious and easy cookie recipe. I would definately make them again. The cookies are great for a Christmas dessert platter. 5 stars
