Countdown to Christmas Cookies – Week 3

Just six more weeks until Christmas eve! Here is Week 3 of my Countdown to Christmas Cookie Series.

Thanksgiving is in six (6) days! And I have been baking my booty off! I’ve made my pumpkin pies, cherry pies, apple pies, fresh baked rolls – so I ask you, why stop there? I made these treasurers to add to my cookie platter too! Seriously, is it possible to have too much food on Thanksgiving? I think NOT!

So, on that note, have you ever found yourself buying those holiday tin cans of butter cookies?  I be a little crazy, but I love those little cookies.  Dunked in a cup of warm milk or chia tea – oh man I can’t resist them!

Cookie Tin Goodness

I decided to make my own little tin cookies. These Buttery Almond Shortbread Cookies are my version of some yummy buttery cookies.  These cookies are a type of Danish Cookie, but with a little of the almond cookies that you get in a Chinese Restaurant.

These Buttery Shortbread Almond Cookies are a great for me! Seriously y’all I cannot stop eating them. I even secretly stashed a baggie of them for me to take to work and hide in my desk. Yep, they’re that good! And if you have kids in your home, like I do….you know nothing is safe!

We are making our way through the Countdown to Christmas Cookie series and today I am bringing you Buttery Shortbread Almond Cookies. Y’all they are awesome. The crisp edges, soft centers, a great texture and loaded with the perfect amount of almond flavor. YUMM!
