Aaron found a picture online of sugar cookies that looked like sand dollars months ago and I swear he has been begging for these cookies ever since. I don't usually keep sliced almonds on hand, so I just ignored his continued requests. We eventually bought some almonds (he was persistent) and were having people over for dinner one night. I figured it was time to make these cookies and got out all of my supplies. I used my normal sugar cookie recipe, arranged the sliced almonds in a star shape, and sprinkled some cinnamon and sugar on top. They looked wonderful and tasted fantastic too. My sugar cookie recipe makes about 5 dozen cookies, so we had these yummy treats for quite some time :) I will definitely be making these again one day.
I am what you would call a homemaker. I love to cook, love to bake, and love crafty hobbies like sewing, quilting, and knitting. This blog is dedicated to these projects. Enjoy!
