These cookies are one of my very favorites. Many of my favorite things revolve around jam. Baby B was a great helper right up until the second batch needed rolling out. He didn’t believe me that I just needed a few more minutes, before the dough got all warm. But somehow all the cookies got made, and eaten!
Since I’ve been feeding this little guy around the clock, I have a never ending craving for cookies. I froze some chocolate chip cookie dough before he came, but I had a bit of time to whip up something different over the weekend. These flourless chocolate almond cookies turned out very good, and (comparatively) healthy too!
Are these not the most adorable cookies you have ever seen? I took a picture of these before they went in the oven just in case something terrible happened in there, but thank goodness, they came out looking just as good. And they are even fully edible! Although I don’t know how you could eat one, instead of just filling your pockets with them.
We spent a lazy Sunday afternoon watching The Jinx and eating cookies. We had to watch all the episodes at once, so thank goodness I already had some slice and bake cookies in the freezer. All we had to do was heat up the oven, slice some dough, and 10 minutes later, shove cookies in our mouths.
We used a variation of this recipe, except walnuts and chocolate chips instead, and no coffee or nutella. We might make it a priority to always have some cookies ready in the freezer from now on.
The weekend always deserves cookies, and thankfully, we still have a couple to get us through the week. These cookies are chewy and spicy and the perfect way to end a long day, or way to make it through the afternoon after waking up at dark o’clock in the morning.
There was an epic search for a pumpkin the other evening. I guess central Austin is almost out of pumpkins? But we managed to find a few to bring home, and we are planning on carving them tonight. And you can’t carve a pumpkin without pumpkin shaped cookies.
