I love cookies. All kinds.
I love to sit and sip on a cup of tea and if there’s a plate of cookies on the table so much the better.
It’s so easy to reach for that one delectable cookie and pop it into your mouth.
The kids love to sit, drink a glass of milk and have a cookie or two.
I found this recipe on the back of of a carton of Publix butter.
I love almonds and anything almond flavored. So, I thought, I’d give these a try… and was amazed by how fast they disappeared once they were done.
I’ve already had many requests for more!!!
