Almond Macaroons

February 18, 2013

One of the easiest cookies to make in the world which is an old-fashioned favorite, whether they be for everyday snacks or super special holiday treats. I made these for Valentine’s Day but quickly had to make another batch this weekend. Almond lovers will appreciate the pure almond flavor for breakfast when you cannot get your hands on some ‘almond croissants’.
