Almondina Cookies – A Modern Tradition

Almondina Cookies and coffee
We all have those secret family recipes. You know the kind that only one or two people in the entire family know how to make? And they either make that dish for every single family gathering or they never ever make it? Well, Almondina cookies started out that way. 
Almondina cookies are made from a decades old family recipe, kept as a closely guarded secret by Grandma Dina. They’re thin and light, with quite the crispy crunch. Normally, I’m not a fan of crispy cookies, but these are different. Almondina cookies are jam-packed full of almonds and raisins. And they come in a myriad of flavors. 
These include:
  • Original – Chock full of almonds, raisins, and almond flavor. 
  • Choconut – Just like the original ones, only chocolate! 
  • Cinnaroma – Almond and cinnamon are such a great, classic combination. 
  • Ginger Spice – The addition of candied ginger makes these amazing! 
  • Sesame – Jam-packed full of sesame seeds. If you like sesame, these are the ones for you. 
  • Chocolate Cherry – Choconut with the addition of dried cherries. Soo so good.

There are a ton of other varieties of Almondina cookies, but these are the ones I tried. I must admit – the Ginger Spice was our favorite. Of course, I am a ginger freak.  A close second was the Chocolate Cherry cookies. I do love a good chocolate cherry flavor. 
I thought these were good with coffee, chai, and ice cream. The Almondina cookies were also a really tasty accompaniment to fruit. I loved the Ginger Spice ones with mixed berries. Gotta admit – they’re pretty tasty all on their own, too. I may or may not have been double-fisting these. They’re great when you’re in the mood for a traditional tasting treat.
You can buy Almondina Cookies directly from their site, or in your local stores.  Connect with them on Facebook and Twitter, too.

    These look delicious and they are very well made meaning they seem like they could be used for everyday entertaining or you could see them in a higher crowd luncheon. :)

    These are actually very good…I have tried them and would have to recommend them. I warn you they can be quite addictive. I would suggest buying the variety pack to find your favorite, you'll have quite a few of them.

    I want to try the Choconuts! I'm not much of an almond person but I think they'd be good in a cookie. I bet they'd be so good dipped in coffee. Man I'm making myself want cookies and coffee! LOL!
    Great Review! :)
