Why This is the Perfect Every Season Snack: White Chocolate and Almond Cookies

It's Sweet to Share!

I love cookies, and I especially love these White Chocolate and Almond Cookies! 

Cookies are simple to make and easy to eat. You can typically make them with any amount of scant ingredients, or ingredients that you likely have in your pantry no matter what time of year it is or where you are in the world. 

And these White Chocolate and Almond Cookies fit that description exactly. These cookies are perfect and super yummy anytime of year. 

At Christmas the combination of white chocolate and almonds in a cookie combined with a pinch of cinnamon is always festive. 

In the summer, these cookies are light and creamy but don’t take too long to bake so the house stays cool.

In the spring the white chocolate in them makes a perfect Easter treat. They can even be mixed with a few colored sprinkles to brighten them up without changing the flavor.

Can I Substitute a Different Type of Nuts?

The answer is always yes, but…

If you use any nut other than almonds, you will completely deviate from the flavor of this recipe. These are intentionally made with almonds and will produce the best flavor and results.

Can I Use Regular Sugar Instead of Powdered Sugar?

You can, but I love how powdered sugar creates a really delicate texture in these cookies and emphasizes the crunch of the nuts by smoothing out the batter.
