Two days ago our grandson Sevy texted me a recipe he had found for sugar cookies. It was suppose to be a link to a copycat recipe for Crumble Cookies sugar cookie. I have no idea what Crumble Cookies taste like as I have never had one but these cookies are SO good. Very soft and with the almond flavor, they are such a great cookie. The first batch was so good, gave them away so have already made a second batch. Video of making them is in YouTube Sassy Southern!
