Recipe: Almond Cookies with a Twist

Almond Cookies | A Burroughs Family Farm Recipe

This recipe is a family tradition in the Burroughs Family! We cannot go through a holiday season or family gathering without making these cookies. The recipe was passed down from Loo Burroughs to her children who have now passed it down to their own children.


This recipe is traditionally made using Burroughs Family Farms Dry Roasted Almonds but we added 70% Dark Chocolate with Orange Almonds for an extra twist to this recipe.

- Set oven to bake at 325 degrees

- Blend on high speed with a mixer:
