Video recipe: Almond shortbread

These almond shortbreads are delicious on their own and even better served with ice cream or a velvety smooth chocolate mousse. They have a sandy texture and subtle almond flavor which comes from adding ground almonds to the batter. Make them by following the instructions in this video by Joy of Baking.


  • 113 g unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 50 g granulated white sugar
  • ½ tsp pure vanilla extract (optional)
  • 85 g all-purpose flour
  • 40 g ground almonds (almond meal/flour)
  • 15 g rice flour or cornstarch (corn flour)
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • Flaked almonds for decorating the top of the shortbread (optional)
