Happy Easter!

I hope your day is bright and cheery :)

Today I have an absolute FABULOUS recipe for you.

Almond Poppy Seed Cookies... These are light and chewy and have an incredible flavor!

Almond. Poppy. Seed. Cookies.

These are absolutely delightful. A perfect taste to bring in the warmer weather in a light chewy cookie.

They are adapted from my Lemon Cookies (which have been deemed the BEST Lemon Cookies by almost all who have tried them- you may want to check those out) and this was such a fun and yummy spin.
