Do you like Almonds?  I love them myself.  Especially in an almond joy!  Seriously though almonds are a really healthy food.  They are really great to eat by themselves or in a recipe.  While I have had almonds several times I had never tried the Almond Flour. 

I was talking to a lady from a company called Just Almonds and she offered to send me a bag of their almonds as well as a bag of almond flour.  My intention was to make something with this almond flour and share the recipe here.  Things turned out different. 

Last Wednesday I went out with my mom for a belated mothers day, girls day out. 

When I came home my husband was all excited and said he had a surprise for me.  John loves to cook. He loves to bake.  And he loves to experiment.  He had decided to make cookies with my almond flour!   At first I thought OH NO.  He has ruined this bag of flour and I won’t be able to share with you all. 

I was wrong.  Yes I don’t admit that often.  When I first bit into the cookie I found it kind of hard.  Once it sat out for a bit they did soften up.  The taste was excellent!  I had to ask him to type out the recipe so I could share it with you all.  He told me that without the almond flour the taste would not have been near the same.  Here is the recipe for John’s

Portuguese Almond Cookies
