Baking cookies is a staple in our household when preparing for fall, and today I wanted to share my family’s favorite almond cookies. There are only five simple ingredients that are put together so quickly, you’ll be wondering how you went from nothing to almond cookies that quick! Food connects the family and brings us together around the table. It’s also an extra way to spend time with each other, so I like to cook with my kids. This almond recipe is a great family activity.

Almond cookies are an underrated flavor.

Almond isn’t in too many baked treats. I’ve tried Italian almond cookies and biscotti, and they inspired me to make the easiest cookies I’ve tried. These almond cookies are the best thing to pair with a cup of coffee or a cup of tea. The bitterness of these drinks pairs well with gently nutty flavors like almond. I love putting lots of almond flavor into these cookies, making the dip into my coffee the most flavorful. The almond slivers on top add a bit of crunch and of course, more tasty almond flavor!

You don’t need to make a special trip to the grocery store or buy almond extract for this almond cookie recipe. The soft almond flavor comes from almond flour and almonds. I think the best part of these cookies is that little bit of crunch you feel in every bite. These are thin cookies so they’re perfect to dip and are easy to store, too.

The beauty of this recipe is that you don’t have to roll cookie balls or shape dough when laying out the cookie dough onto the baking tray. This recipe makes flat cookies that bake with a soft center. Fewer steps and more flavor make a better and easy recipe!
