A gift for Mother’s Day: Almond cookies ready in 10 minutes

This Sunday is Mother’s Day, at least in Spain, and although I can not celebrate with my mother because she lives in Rome, I hope you spend a special day with yours. Although you probably already know what to give to your moms, I have always thought that details are what matters, so I propose this sweet, easy and quick recipe that even the little ones can prepare, to accompany the gift. As I always say: cooking for someone is a way to take care of him.

This recipe is very simple, but it is delicious. I’m sure many fathers will be able to help their children to prepare these cookies for moms;)

I hope you like the recipe and Happy Day to all mothers!

With these quantities, I got 18 tiny cookies.
