Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, cream together softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.
Beat in the egg, ensuring it's well incorporated. Stir in almond extract for an extra boost of almond flavor.
In a separate bowl, whisk together all-purpose flour, almond flour, and salt.
Gradually add the dry ingredients to the butter and sugar mixture, mixing just until combined.
Gently fold in the chopped almonds until evenly distributed throughout the cookie dough.
Scoop out tablespoon-sized portions of dough and roll them into balls. Optionally, press a whole almond into the center of each cookie for a decorative touch.
Place the cookie dough balls on the prepared baking sheets, leaving enough space between each.
Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes or until the edges are golden brown. The centers should still be slightly soft.
Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely. Delight in the nutty elegance of Almond Cookies with each delightful crunch.
