Almond Cookies

Spread the love

These Italian almond cookies bring back warm memories of our mother in law who made the best cookies every Christmas and almond cookies were no exception!

We’ve made them using alternative ingredients but they still have the same soft chewy center that almond cookies are famous for… re-created, but never duplicated… we know she would approve of these delicious cookies!

Using a stand mixer or hand mixer, cream the ghee and coconut sugar together.
