Bake-a-thon 2016: Day 3
Bake of the day: Almond Cacao Nib Cookies

Baking cookies is one of my favorite thing to do during the holiday season. I saw the recipe for these Cacao nib biscuits and added them to my holiday baking list. These Almond cacao nib cookies are easy to put together and they turn out crispy and delightful.Almond Cookies Almond flavor comes in the form of almond meal/ flour in these cookies. You can choose to ground your almonds or you can use store bought almond meal or flour, like I did. Cacao nibs are one of my latest favorite ingredient, they are slightly sweet and slightly bitter. So they add a nice crunch and delicious taste to these cookies.
Almond CookiesThe dough for these cookies is very easy to work with, almost like play doh. You can either cut out the cookies using a cookie cutter or be rustic and cut them into squares. Either way they turn out crispy and delicious.Almond CookiesThey keep well in an airtight container for up to 1 week. So make a batch and keep them in the cookie jar for the holiday guests, I am sure they’ll love them.Almond Cookies
