Description

These vanilla shortbread cookies make the perfect edible gift around the holidays and if you want to do something a little different you can hang them from ribbon to use as ornaments on the tree. Almond meal adds a bit of nuttiness that pairs perfectly with the vanilla that is featured so delicately in these cookies. A simple colorful icing and some sprinkles add a beautiful and festive decoration to these otherwise simple cookies.
