Mom's Almond Cherry Cookies

1166

This almond cookie recipe has been a Christmas tradition in my family ever since I can remember. My mom made these every year at Christmas time and I have to say they are to this day one of my favorite cookies ever! She handed down her recipe to me on a 3x5 card that I still have to this day. It has yellowed and the writing has faded but I consider it a treasure! Christmas truly is a time where you can bring loved ones back into your memories as you enjoy the special treats that you grew up
