Cook the Issue 2010: Marcona Almond and Orange Cookies

By Pielove, member

July 21st, 2010

These are deliciously nutty, not-too-sweet cookies.  I had some Marcona almonds to use up and they made a great substitution-- I prefer the texture of the toasted almonds.  I didn't have any oranges, so I used the Boyjian orange oil, which gave excellent flavor.  The olive oil in this recipe didn't contribute a strong taste, but it certainly made these little beauties easy to put together-- no softening or creaming required.  A tasty cookie-- all that was missing was the glass of sherry!

Recipe Used: Pine Nut and Orange Cookies

Yeah, I've gained a few pounds too-- these cookies are really (although I hate to use the word) addictive-- I can't stop eating them. With no butter, they must be healthy, right???
