I adore chocolate cookies. I make many different varieties of chocolate cookies – any excuse is a reason for a chocolate cookie in my book. But about 10 years ago, I decided to branch out and look for other cookies to bake for my family. Fortunately, I discovered this recipe for almond cookies right away.
Everyone in my family likes this iced almond cookie and it’s always requested when I’m baking.
It’s a soft buttery cookie with a hint of almond flavor. I add almond flavoring to the icing as well, but you could create a more subtle almond flavor by using vanilla extract in the icing.
I first started making these iced almond cookies as Christmas cookies and that’s how my family thinks of them.
It’s easy to make them in large batches, the freeze perfectly and they’re so pretty with the green icing.
But then it occurred to me that these green cookies are also perfect for St. Patrick’s Day. Since my family already loves them, it makes sense to serve them more than just during the holiday season.
Whatever occasion you have, you’ll find this recipe for almond cookies will become your go-to recipe.
I’m a mom of 3, a veteran and military spouse. I’ve moved into 20+ homes all around the world. My passion is helping busy people make the space and time for what’s really important to them.
These look so yummy and I love that they melt in your mouth, Susan. Since there is just two of us at home now, I often freeze cookies. It is nice to know these freeze well.
Enjoy, Cynthia. These cookies are a favorite with 3 generations of my family.
Hi Susan! These look scrumptious! I’ll have to give them a go this week, and hopefully eat some before my son & husband do! (hiding behind the kitchen wall is my usual trick).. 😉
Thanks for sharing. 🙂
Since these cookies freeze well, Jane, you can also hide a few for yourself in the freezer. 🙂 Us moms have got to stick together and make sure we get our share, don’t we?
We love almond cookies and green is my favorite color so this is a winner! I’m like Cynthia, there are just two of us so I freeze cookies. This is great for when Steve has his evening cravings I can pop a few in the oven and they are not just sitting around for me to eat!
I love a hint of almond in my sugar sugars. It makes it feel like a grown-up version. Perfect with a cup of tea!
These look so good! I am sadly allergic to almonds, but I bet I could sub in vanilla extract and it would be super tasty. Yum!
