almond cookies

 

There is always an excuse for baking some cookies. Whether is Easter, Christmas,Mother’s Day or summertime I,personally always find an excuse to make something sweet,a cake,cookies or doughnuts,to company my morning coffee. Nobody wants to begin his/her day with a plain coffee and an empty stomach!

Fragrant,soft and nutty,these cookies are simply gorgeous! The white chocolate flirting with the cashews and the floral notes of orange come along. I’m telling you,these cookies are out of this world scrumptious! My picky daughter ate them with her milk and she loved them! So simple to make and a great way to make your little ones help you. Besides, what’s baking without a messy kitchen?
