I used the recipe from Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar. I didn't add the almond extract because the almond paste lends the cookies plenty of flavor. I also used far less pine nuts than suggested, because I am honestly not the biggest pine nut fan. I also didn't need to dip my cookies in milk before pressing the pine nuts on. They stuck just fine to the un-moistened dough. I used store bought almond paste, but am highly considering making my own next time. You basically puree blanched almonds with sugar until it's smooth. I have a fancy blender, so I feel like I should make the most of it. Has anyone ever made almond paste?
I am also in love with these dishes! I have the same plate in a different color, but I had never seen a matching cup. While I like the blue shade of the older plate, this lavender-grey has really won me over. Anthropoglie kitchenware always reels me in. I have been really good about not adding to my stock pile of dishes in the last few months, but I just couldn't help it?! Sometimes when I look at all of the kitchen related things I have I feel like I might have a slight hoarding problem. But then I remember about how good I am about maintaining minimal possessions in all the other aspects of my life. I don't have very many shoes or clothes. I don't have many books. It's just all cupcake pans & vintage saucers & hang printed napkins. Everybody's gotta have a vice right?!
