Double Chocolate Almond Cookies AND a Giveaway
There are many perks to being a food blogger and one of them is getting to try wonderful products and cookbooks. I was recently contacted by Tate’s Bake Shopto host a giveaway on my site. I received some wonderful cookies that were buttery, crisp, and so delicious as well as a great cookbook filled with bread, muffin, cookie, and cake recipes. We all enjoyed the cookies and I really enjoyed the beautiful cookbook. It’s filled with excellent recipes that I am so excited to try. The first recipe to catch my eye was this cookie recipe. They were a HUGE hit with my husband and children. They are extremely rich and decadent – perfect for my chocolate loving family.Double Chocolate Almond Cookies: Recipe and photos by For the Love of Cooking.net Original recipe from Tate’s Bake Shop Cookbook by Kathleen King
