Powder Cookies

Updated: Nov 24, 2022

This recipe comes from mother of one of my blog readers, Michele.

I made a few small adjustments to the original spec and they turned out amazing! I love the texture that lays somewhere between a biscuit and a macaron, dead easy to make and super delicious to snack on while watching your favourite movie on the sofa.

The only thing you gonna need is a cup of tea or coffee :)

Portion size: Makes around 24 cookies

Preparation time: 30-40 minutes (including dough resting time)

Baking time: 10 minutes


  • 250g of plain flour (works with gluten-free flour as well)

  • 100g of ground almonds

  • pinch of salt

  • 2tsp of baking powder

  • 200g of caster/granulated sugar

  • 100g of butter (room temperature)

  • 2 large eggs

  • 2tsp of vanilla bean paste

  • icing sugar for dusting


  1. Sieve plain flour into a standing mixer bowl and add all the remaining ingredients, mix everything together until you reach a uniform cookie dough.

  2. Transfer ready dough onto a plate and place it inside the refrigerator to bring down its temperature (around 20-30 minutes)

  3. Preheat the fan oven to 180C (350F).

  4. Pinch a tablespoon of the dough and roll in your hands to form a ball then flatten and place on a non-stick baking tray.

  5. Bake cookies for around 10 minutes then allow to cool down before removing them from the tray.

  6. Once cooled, dust with icing sugar.


  • Try to use other ground nuts instead of almonds or use coconut to make it nut-free.
