Yesterday’s cookies were Aunt Alvina’s Almond Crescents. I have great memories of these as an annual tradition in our house. Aunt Alvina hasn’t been doing too much baking for the past few years. It’s too hard to balance the cookie tray when using a walker. So it’s been fun to recreate these little treasures. As I take over this recipe I plan to change its name. I want to call them “Smiles.” Kinda dorky I know, but that’s me.
