Almond Cookies

almond_cookies_main

My girlfriend introduced me to these delicious treats. And ever since then I have been hooked to these. Almond cookies are so easy to make .  I love almonds and almond extract! My 9-year-old son and I just finished them, and they are TO-DIE-FOR!!! Melt in your mouth!  My boys had so much fun helping to roll the balls and put the almonds and glaze on.
Since it is festive season I decided to make Almond cookies along with my other sweet treats which I make every year for Diwali. And since it was for Diwali I did not use the egg wash, it came out really good too. Personally I like egg wash as it gives a nice texture on top of the cookies.
