Get in the Christmas mood by baking these amazing Egg-Free Almond Sugar Cookies!
Can you believe Christmas is just a few days away? I have to admit, I am not feeling the holidays mood yet, although we are doing plenty of Christmas activities – our Christmas tree is up and blinking, there is Christmas music playing in the background, we have our winter coats and mittens, and we even got to the cookie baking already.
Baking cookies is not high on my priority list usually, as we are not very sweet of tooth. Cookies to me seem time-consuming, with all the mixing, chilling, cutting, baking and decorating… But, we put on our holiday cheers, made some mulled wine and baked these amazing Almond Sugar Cookies that are a pure delight… and the best part? No chilling required! So you can just make the dough and stick them into the oven. Which is just the way I like my cookies.
Now, these almond sugar cookies are neither really healthy nor a clean food, but sometimes, as it is at Christmas, you have to feed your soul and indulge a little. And if you are going to eat cookies, then by all means, go for the homemade ones over store-bought, as this way you can control your ingredients.
You can replace almonds with other nuts, such as walnuts, pecans or peanuts, and even add spices to your liking for a twist (cinnamon, ginger).
