Growing up, one of my closest friends would invite me over to celebrate Easter with her very large, very Italian family. I decided to try to recreate the delicious Easter cookies I looked forward to enjoying at her house ever year.
I used this recipe and made mine with almond extract. I packed some up to share with friends.
These cookies are soooo yummy. Light and almondy, with a sweet icing.
The perfect Easter treat.

my Simple White Pleats top won the Reader's Choice for Week 1! And only by a small margin, so thank you to all of you who voted!
There will be a whole new batch of tops next week, so be sure to check back. And keep your eye on all the great submissions in the Flickr pool.
