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.
