Almond Poppy Seed Cookies

Happy Easter!

I hope your day is bright and cheery :)

Today I have an absolute FABULOUS recipe for you.

Almond Poppy Seed Cookies... These are light and chewy and have an incredible flavor!

Almond. Poppy. Seed. Cookies.

These are absolutely delightful. A perfect taste to bring in the warmer weather in a light chewy cookie.

They are adapted from my Lemon Cookies (which have been deemed the BEST Lemon Cookies by almost all who have tried them- you may want to check those out) and this was such a fun and yummy spin.

    They look delicious, but I can't read the recipe as it is all covered over with little tags of the word stumble

    These cookies look beautiful. I'd love to lick the icing off the cookie before stuffing it in my mouth.

    Made these tonight and they were delicious. Just as described above, they were light and chewy. I did find that I had to bake them quite a bit longer than listed above. I'm sure not everyone would like to know but it would be great to include nutritional information in your recipes (I was able to input the ingredients and get a calorie count from these great little cookies). Will definitely make again. Next I might just have to try your lemon cookies

    Thank you for the recipe! This made 36, and I was pleased that the icing quantity was just right for the amount of cookies! My chocolate chip cookie monsters absolutely loved the change! Thanks again!
