About Fig-Almond Cookies

These are absolutely delicious. You will like them, I am sure.. why I am saying this is because my fussy eater toddler loved these and wanted every now and then.. he comes to me and cutely asks "biki" in his language pointing his finger to the cupboard 😆. Soft, buttery, mildly sweet and a very slight flavour of fresh orange...and ofcourse healthy.. please do try it.
