Time for Tea and Cookies


Almond Cookies for 1 person

There are so many glorious recipes for cakes, cookies, crumbles and biscuits but the amounts are often large and can be overwhelming if you live alone. It can also mean you are eating them for days which isn't always ideal. 
I decided to make a small batch of cookies, just enough for one person to munch on with a lovely, large cup of freshly brewed tea (of choice)
The result was fantastic and they are really very easy to whip up in a jiffy.
Of course you can double or triple the recipe if you want to share with your family, friends and kids.

So here it is - the super simple recipe for 7 awesomely delicious, almond, thumbprint cookies.

Happy cooking!
