The most delicious Almond Crunch Cookies and they are so easy! This simple and easy, yet delicious little sweet treat recipe will make you smile every time you take a bite!
ALMOND CRUNCH COOKIES
These are my son’s cookies! I was the sous chef this time in the kitchen. Yes, I’m so proud; Lincoln made these Almond Crunch Cookies all by himself. Well, he made them up to the point they were ready to cook, at that point he just wants to eat the dough! Funny, he and Ryder never care about actually baking or eating the baked cookies. It’s all about the cookie dough!
He’s a great baker I’ve had him in the kitchen baking with me since he could stand. Of course, I was giving instructions as well as explaining why we were doing what we were doing. (Lincoln wants to know the ‘why’ behind everything.)
On to the cookies!
THE ANATOMY OF A COOKIE
The oats give a good ‘chew’ and the cereal gives a good ‘crunch’ to this cookie. This Almond Crunch Cookie is not an overly sweet cookie. Which is kind of perfect, if you want the sweeter drizzle white chocolate over them, if you don’t like overly sweet cookies, simply omit the chocolate!
You can also use dark, semi, or milk chocolate for the drizzle.
Melt white chocolate (read How to Melt Chocolate) in the microwave in a zip-top freezer bag. When it’s thoroughly melted, snip the corner off and drizzle over the top of the cookies. Allow the chocolate to dry before serving or packaging.
