Almond Cookies

Almond cookies are a real treat. They are the perfect accommpaniment to a cup of tea and are great for those, like my husband, who don’t have a real sweet tooth as they have a deep yet subtle flavour. They’re not a heavy cookie so it’s easy to eat lots of them! They last for ages and are very easy to make.
