Almond Puff - literally a little slice of heaven!
If I were to describe this to someone, I would tell them it is a shortbread crust, covered in a cream puff, then drenched in a light frosting, and sprinkled with almonds... It always surprises people to find out the ingredients in this “cookie” (the only thing that makes it a cookie is the frosting)
This is a favorite recipe of mine because it always makes me look like I worked really hard...(but that couldn’t be further than the truth!) These are much easier than standing by the oven for a few hours making cookies.
One of the side benefits is that it is LOW in sugar - the only sugar it has is in the light frosting. (We will ignore the drawbacks - butter has to be a good thing once in a while)
