Cousin Donna's Almond Cookies

EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

"This recipe originates from Cousin Donna in New Jersey. Well, not *my* cousin Donna, but my good friend Sue Ann's. When we first moved into this neighborhood, we used to have a yearly cookie exchange with the gals: bring 6 dozen of your favorite cookies, go home with 6 dozen different cookies. This was one that Sue Ann brought, and I fell in love with it. By the end of the evening, there were only 4 cookies left to bring home. That first cookie exchange was 7 years ago, and I've been making these cookies every year since. (And if you must know, the cookie that I brought at the first cookie exchange, was horrid almond brittle gone wrong, packaged in a nice tin. We used it as a doorstop for many years.)" - Jaden Hair
