Almond Chocolate Chip Cookies
And now for my last baking blog post in Florida 😭
The movers came yesterday and packed up the whole house. Today they are loading everything up in the truck. And Saturday we make the official trek up to Michigan.
If it wasn't real before, it is definitely real now.
I am super excited for this new chapter. I am excited for seasons! This FL heat can be a real bitch.
But I would be lying if I said I wasn't sad. I am sad to leave all of our friends and family behind. I am sad to leave everything I have ever known. It hit me when that moving truck showed up....I may or may not have cried a little bit 😔
ANYWHO - enough with the sad stuff. I wanted this post to be these super easy little coconut cookies. I tested out a recipe earlier this week and they turned out like poo. Granted they tasted fantastic, but they all melted together into one cookie and looked like dog shit. Cool cool cool.
Sooooo I decided to make a classic #paleo chocolate chip cookie. I added a little twist to these by using almond extract instead of vanilla extract, and I loveeee them. So keep that in mind - if you want just a good ol', regular choc chip cookie, sub the almond extract for vanilla extract.
These are denser cookies, almost like a soft shortbread? But still so damn good. I have been eating them for breakfast every day 🥴. My husband said they are reminiscent of Italian cookies w/ that hint of almond.
Talk to y'all when we get up to Michigan! XOXOXOXO
