Triple Almond Cookies

Triple Almond Cookies Recipe - cookies packed with tons of great almond flavor - almond extract, chopped almonds and almond toffee bits! We ate WAY too many of these cookies. Makes a ton. Great for a potluck!

If you love almond flavors, then you are going to absolutely love these Triple Almond Cookies! They are packed full of tons of almond flavor. Almond extract, chopped almonds and almond toffee bits. They are dangerously delicious!

The house smelled amazing while these cookies baked. We couldn't wait to give them a try. We both had a really hard time controlling ourselves around these cookies. I gave most of them away to my parents so we didn't sit around the house eating them all day (because we totally would have).  This recipe makes a lot of cookies, so this would be a great dessert to take to a potluck.
