Happy New Year everyone!

I baked some cookies for Christmas, from recipes I discovered on the net and thought I would share. The big ones on the bottom are lemon ricotta cookies with a lemon glaze. Easy and yummy!

The smaller cookies on top are almond shortbread. These cookies carry a WARNING. I cannot stop eating them!  I baked a half batch of each for Christmas and still have some lemon cookies. In the mean time I am up to 5 batches of the shortbread and will soon begin a sixth!  Great recipe, but please heed the warning.

Happy baking and Happy New Year! Ski

You are soooo right about almond shortbread. Best to keep them on a high shelf on the far side of the room, so at least you're forced to reach for them. I used KAF's recipe - fewer ingredients, but oh, my, are they good.

And, no doubt, the lemon cookies are great, too. Happy 2016!

I've never had almond shortbread, but if short bread is already delicious and is difficult to stop eating; then what more if there are almonds in them! I must try this someday.

Happy New Year!
