Butter cookies with ground almonds

I got this recipe from here . I did a bit of modifications to suit my taste.

Maida - 1 cup
Almonds - 1 cup
Baking powder - 1/4 tsp
Salt - 2 pinch
Butter - 1/2 cup
Sugar - 3/4 cup

Stir together flour, ground almonds, baking powder, and salt; set aside.
In a mixing bowl cream butter and sugar at medium speed of electric hand held mixer.
Stir flour and ground almond mixture into the creamed mixture. Cover with plastic wrap; chill for about 2 hours.
Shape dough into small balls, about 3/4-inch. Place balls 2 inches apart; flatten slightly with the bottom of a glass.
Pre heat oven for 210C. Bake at 250C for about 12 - 15 minutes, or until set but not browned.

Come and have some....
