I made a lot of cookies this holiday season but these were the ones I liked the best, I also built the recipe from scratch because I didn’t have almond extract and I wanted to use up my maple sugar. purposefully went halves on the sugars and the oils because I wanted the flavor blend. Added almond meal to boost the almond flavor but not too much as to jeopardize the integrity of the cookie.
