Recipe: Almond Cookies

Almond is one of my favorite flavors and scents ever. I have got almond everything. Shower gel, body lotion, face cream, candles, and food of course. Almond spread. Stollen. Marzipan. Raw almonds. Slivered almonds. Sliced almonds. Almond extract. If ever I was a character in a game, my weakness most certainly would be “almonds”. Or my strength. I am not sure about that. I definitely can’t pass by marzipan without buying it. And eating it, obviously. Actually, maybe almonds would be my strength, like my special power food, because so far I haven’t exploded from eating them. I rather feel better when I taste and/or smell them. | Recipe: Almond Cookies

Since I have almonds in all kind of shapes and states at home, I decided it was time for some almond cookies. Even while making them the whole kitchen already smelled sooo good. It is definitely a great Christmas scent – although I also don’t mind it at the height of summer. Depending on your preferences you can cut the dough into smaller or bigger squares. I obviously love big almond cookies. But I was nice and even shared them with my roommate.

Just one warning: Be careful with the almond extract. If you use too much, the cookies turn out bitter. Just saying …

Do you like almonds? Or what is your personal superfood?

P.s. I also love spinache a lot. But it doesn’t go that well with cookies.
