A couple of weeks ago we had a Ladies Tea at church. It’s always a sweet time when all of us to get together and it’s made even sweeter by all the yummy treats everyone brings to share.
We had the choice of bringing a sweet or savory treat…and if you’ve followed me for a while, you know that baking something sweet would be my choice! 😋

I found the recipe for these amazing Almond Meltaway Cookies here on The Novice Chef. They are really easy to make and are so good with a hot cup of tea or coffee.
The dough is thick and a little sticky. I formed my cookies with my hands. To keep the dough from sticking, I kept a bowl of water close by to dip my fingers in.
Here they are ready for the oven. I highly recommend using silicone baking mats when you are baking just about any type of cookie! They keep your cookies from sticking to the baking sheet and are easy to clean – no need for parchment paper or cooking spray.
These tasty cookies are husband approved. In his words, “Hmm – these are really good!”
If you’re not an almond flavor fan, I’m thinking these cookies would be really good substituting vanilla extract for the almond extract or maybe even lemon extract. I’ll have to try one of those next time…
