Cookie Almond Clusters and the Winner of my Contest and Giveaway!

Thank you so much to everyone that participated in mine and Kayle’s Christmas Cookie Exchange this year! The exchange is literally bursting with irresistible cookie pics! I’ve gotten so many fun e-mails from you all talking about which cookies inspired you at home, so sending a big smothering grandma hug to all my lovely readers today!

And the official winner of Kristina & Kayle’s Christmas Cookie Exchange and a $10 Starbuck’s Gift Card is….

Stephie with her “Maureen’s Rice Crispy Cookies”!

 And… the winner of the Silpat Baking Mat Giveaway is…

Jennifer Drummond!

Congrats Stephie and Jennifer! Both of you please e-mail me your mailing addresses to so I can send you your prize!

So to officially wrap up the cookie extravaganza, my bestie and blogging partner, Ashley, is here today to share her recipe for her Cookie Almond Clusters!

Hi guys! This is an old recipe of my mom’s and I’m not entirely sure where she got it from. They are called Cookie Almond Clusters and are literally the easiest thing ever to make but taste sooo good!  They have a nice crunchy texture and are perfect for people who enjoy the sweet/savory combo.  And there is no oven involved.  Start to finish time is 10-15 minutes!
