Last Wednesday before having to stay in the house for a couple of days due to some icy weather, a friend of mine gave me some almond cookies while we were up at church that morning! Patsy had bought them from a bakery over off 75 and was sharing them with us. I put them in my purse (yes that is why I carry a large purse so I can carry cookies or chocolates if needed) to take them home to have that night! While Randy and I were about to decide on what we wanted for a snack around 8 O Clock, I remembered the cookies! I ran to get them and opened the bag. Patsy had told me about how amazing they were and that I would love them! But I figured, “ how good can a bought cookie really be” but….after one bite I was so sorry I had already told Randy about them instead of making up an excuse to go sit in the car so I could have them both! They were delicious! The almond flavor the white chocolate chips, the soft cake like texture. They tasters like wedding cake which is my favorite cake in the world (if it is almond flavored). Because of the weather I had to wait until Saturday to get to the store and buy white chocolate chips! I had a package of sugar cookie mix and almond flavoring already. And because we were having company for dinner last night I made pies first. After all I had learned my lesson and I wasn’t going to share these little gems with anyone! I just took them out of the oven. They will go beautifully with my Blue Bell Brides Cake flavored ice cream tonight! They aren’t quite the same texture as the ones from the bakery but the flavors is exactly the same. Because I used a cookie mix I followed the directions on the back of the package plus added 2 teas of almond extract and half of the 12 oz package of chips. Next time I will add an extra egg and I think that will be more like the bakery cookie texture. But these are great and so easy! Had to add some bling to them!
