makes about 5 dozen

1/2 cup softened butter
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 egg yolk
1/4 tsp almond extract
1 cup all purpose flour
1/3 cup almond flour
1/4 tsp kosher salt
Granulated sugar

Cream the butter & the sugars on Medium speed with a stand mixer until light & airy, about 2 to 3 minutes. Stop the mixer occasionally & scrape down the sides of the bowl using a rubber spatula. Add the egg yolk & the almond extract. Mix the dough just until blended. Whisk together the all purpose flour, the almond flour & the salt in a small bowl. Add to the butter mixture & blend just until the dough comes together. Form the dough into a disc & wrap with plastic. Chill 30 minutes or up to 2 days.

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Roll portions of the dough to a 1/8-inch thickness on a lightly floured surface & cut 4-inch squares. Slice them in half, then cut each piece in half again. Once again, cut the pieces in half to create 8 strips of dough. Pinch a small portion of the dough 1/4 from the top of each piece then press the top & bottom portion into an oval shape to resemble a spoon. Place 1-inch apart on parchment paper-lined half sheet pans. Re-roll the dough scraps & repeat the process. Sprinkle the dough surface with a bit of granulated sugar. Bake, in batches, on the center oven rack 16 minutes or just until color begins to form around the cookie edges. They will be pale in color on the surface & golden on the bottom. Remove from the oven & sprinkle the surface with additional granulated sugar. Cool completely.

    Can you use the spoons as actual spoons and then eat them?
