Chocolate Studded Almond Crescents

(Not Just) Holiday Cookies

I was going to take a break from baking, but this recipe called out to me and, hon, the cookies are buttery, not too sweet, and delicious! They’re great for the holidays and all year round. Shout out to Sheila for the recipe, which will now be in my repertoire of cookie regulars. Yum!

Happy baking!
