Ultimate Almond Cookies by The Novice Chef. Made using Almond Paste, Almond Extract, Almond Meal and Slivered Almonds, these cookies are seriously the Ultimate Almond Cookie! I wish I knew the proper Spanish name for these, but at the bakery all they are called are “Almond Cookies”. With a crispy exterior and soft chewy center, these are the best of both worlds. They keep wonderfully for up to 3 days and are every Almond lover’s dream.
