Almond Cookies

eating christmas cookie If it has almond flavoring or almond paste or almond anything, I have come to realize that it is hard for me to stop eating it. (Maybe it’s because I’m Dutch and the Dutch eat banket?)

 So with that in mind and staying true to my affinity for making things that are easy, I whipped these little buggers up. They are delicious and and easy and your family will be happy you made them. There is still time, so get to it, and if I were you, I would double the recipe because it doesn’t make near enough (if you are going to let anyone else have any) and you could always hide a few in the freezer, for later. Or put like a hundred in the freezer because January is coming and it is a very-long-boring month.
