12 Days of Christmas Cookies
These Festive Almond Crinkle Cookies are incredibly soft and chewy. A warm vanilla almond flavor makes these cookies as delicious as they are easy!
Made with just four ingredients, they were by far the easiest cookies on the list!
I added ½ teaspoon of almond extract to really pop the flavor! I’ve also tried ½ teaspoon of vanilla extract, which is delightful, and I plan to try peppermint next year!
The texture of the cookies is easily customizable as well. The longer you bake them, the cakier they become. They are made with cake mix after all!
My mom and I like ours just shy of doughy, but my husband prefers them closer to cake. Just know that the longer you bake them, the faster they dry out. They are best within 5 days but the cakey ones should really be eaten within 3.
Each bite of these delightfully chewy cookies will deliver bright almond flavor – just try not to breathe or powdered sugar will get everywhere!
