These Slovenian Almond Cookies are an old family recipe. Super easy to make and they always make it on to my Christmas dessert plate! They’re deliciously soft and chewy on the inside and hard on the outside. They are one of my husbands favourite cookies that makes and he looks forward to having them every year at Christmas!
