Family and cookies are a tradition of Christmas in our family! This family favorite is so easy that even my 6 year old and grandpa could join in the fun!
This holiday favorite has taken a long time to perfect! First was finding a recipe that worked. Then the search for the right flour blend that would produce the melt in your mouth “spritz” cookies as well as stay together in the pressed form!
THE FLOUR: The important key here is to use a
light baking flour, the one I used is the King Arthur’s gluten free flour. This is the only one that I have found that gave me the results I was looking for! You can find it online easily and some co-ops carry it!
Christmas just is not Christmas without the traditional Almond Roca! Uncle Steve makes the best but we can not and choose not to eat the corn syrup and butter that make it so wonderful! So, we have a twist on the old traditional favorite! This is a great Christmas gift as well for teachers and friends! To fancy it up a bit I will crush almonds and sprinkle over the top of the melted chocolate and it dresses it up a lot!
***NOTE: Listed here is the original recipe. I did not care for the honey as it burned too easily! So, I used coconut nectar and it was much better. I also used maple syrup which was delicious! I also used whole raw almonds instead of slivered!
