Finnish almond log cookies are soft, buttery almond meal cookies, rolled in colored sugar and laced with slivered almonds. They will brighten up and sweeten up your holiday cookie platter!
I’m a bit obsessed with holiday cookie recipes. After all, cookies are loaded with carbs, and eating carbs is my favorite
addiction food activity.
That’s one reason that I’m excited to participate in The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap this year!
Almond log cookies are my choice for the cookie swap, because I love eating them, and they ship really well!
The rules of the swap are easy: Each of the participants bakes 3 dozen cookies, then ships 1 dozen to each of the three bloggers we’re assigned to swap with. It’s fun to bake and ship cookies to a recipient that has no idea where their cookies are coming from. It’s equally fun receiving 3 boxes of cookies yourself.
Last year, I made cinnamon roll cookies. They are delicious cookies, but also, very fragile. This year, I wanted to bake a unique but equally tasty cookie, and something that wouldn’t crumble to pieces during shipment. So, I decided on these Finnish almond log cookies.
The best part about this year’s swap is that the cookie swap organizers, Lindsay and Julie , partnered up with OXO, a huge supporter for Cookies for Kids’ Cancer. So all of the participants paid a small registration fee and every dollar went directly to the charity. How awesome is that?
Giving to others warms my heart, so I truly hope that my recipients, Deanna, Chris, and Karen, enjoy their almond log cookies! Special thanks goes out to the wonderful bloggers who sent ME cookies this year. Thank you, Amanda, Jessica, and Kathy for the delicious treats you lovingly sent my way!
Now I hope all of YOU enjoy this recipe as much as I enjoyed baking the delicious cookies for you!
