Almond Joy Cookies

As the weather turns cooler, and fall turns into winter, there are two things I love to do - quilt and bake. There's nothing better than a day of quilting with an occasional hot chocolate and cookie break. So I'm always on the search for yummy cookie recipes. One of the latest that's been showing up on my Facebook feed is "Almond Joy Cookies". I thought I'd share my version of the recipe - and yup, I've taste tested them and they have my 'sew good' stamp of approval!

  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Instructions:
  1. Pre-heat oven to 375°F Lightly grease cookie sheets.
  2. Combine dry ingredients, set aside.
