So, now that autumn has arrived, and the kids are back to school, I’m in the mood to bake cookies.
I like to make fresh cookies for my kid’s lunches, and these almond cookies are always a favorite in our house! Since this is my mother’s recipe, I thought it would be nice to name them after her.
She would be so tickled to know that her baking legacy lives on.
So, I remember her packing them in my lunch, and all my friends would want to swap with me. These cookies were such an incredible treat that I didn’t usually trade them with my friends.
Also, the cool thing about them is that they freeze well, so make a double batch and freeze some for later. You can freeze the dough or the baked cookie, whichever suits your fancy.

I hope you try these baking these cookies! They are delicious and so light and flaky. There is a danger that you can’t stop eating them. They have a deceptive quality since they are so airy and flaky it feels like you aren’t eating too many.
So, this recipe meets my three requirements for a good cookie. It is simple to make, yummy, and bakes the same every time. This recipe isn’t a complicated cookie, and they come out of the oven, all looking the same every time.
My mom recently passed away so even more, I love that I can pass along her recipes. She loved baking when she was younger. I’m carrying on her legacy. I only wish, is that she knew that I named her cookie after her and that many of you are enjoying her recipe!
So if you bake these cookies, thanks for keeping my mom’s recipe alive, and maybe it will become a favorite in your family as well.
