what kind of holiday season would it be without gingerbread? this year, I decided to go simple with them, they are fluted rounds with a dusting of coarse sugar. perfect for snacking or dunking and even suitable for stacking with a frosting filling. need a recipe? try this one from rose levy beranbaum’s book, rose’s christmas cookies.
on a recent trip to atlanta, my daughter and i made a stop at one of our favorite places, white windmill bakery. they have so many cookies to choose from but these almond cookies caught my eye. when i returned home, i began a search for the recipe and after several tries, i came up with these. they do not look like much but if you love almonds, these things are addictive.
i must have made at least 3 batches. for the gluten free cookie lover, they are easy to make with rice flour and every bit as tasty! try this recipe, it is the one i started with but i did add a little butter and increased the almonds. since it is a work in progress, i am not posting the recipe at this time.
