I am always amazed how each time I don’t think I’ll find an original cookie recipe, I end up finding numerous ones! There are so many different cookies, each with its own unique flavors. And even if you don’t call yourself a baker, you can definitely make a cookie. These simple almond-flavored cookies use such simple flavors and use honey – a favorite of mine! Simple ingredients work together for a perfect cookie!

These are simple cookies, but that means the honey and almonds really shine through. Perfect with dessert or coffee, these are great cookies to try!
