Almond Blossom Cookies @EclecticEveryday

Because I love peanut butter chocolate blossom cookies so much, I wanted to change up the flavor a little bit. For these cookies, I started with a super soft almond cookie and added an almond Kiss. They are so good. Head over to the Pillsbury site to check out my step by step photos for these almond blossom cookies.
