Almond Acorn Cookies

We made these delicious cookies a few days ago.
I used a President's Choice acorn cookie mold tray to make them. 

Aren't they pretty?

I found this recipe online.
I highly recommend it.
They were calling them Sandbakkels or Norwegian Sunbuckle cookies. I kept pretty true to the recipe but did manage to replace some of the ground almonds with a couple teaspoons of ground flax seed.

I put balls of the dough into the mold and laid a sheet of plastic wrap over top. Then I pressed each one into the mold. I removed the plastic wrap and baked it following the recipe instructions.

Next time we make these I'll coat the bottoms of each cookie in melted chocolate.
Hope you try them too!
