Almond Cookies

These simple cookies are both vegan and gluten free. They are also quick and easy to make, really only requiring one bowl.

These are basically an almond shortbread cookie, so they are not too sweet at all and pair well with spring and summer fruits such as berries and stone fruits.

Hopefully you enjoy these cookies! I like that they are not too sweet and this small and easy batch is perfect to throw together for a coffee or tea date. Plus, being vegan and gluten free, they are good for most people to eat (aside from those with almond allergies of course).
