Lemon And Almond Christmas Wreath Cookies

Lemon And Almond Christmas Wreath Cookies are one of the best cookies with the freshness of lime and crunchiness from almonds. These cookies taste so good and make as perfect Christmas Cookies.

I love the sound of Wreath Cookies. These are staple Christmasy cookies and oh so yummy!
The aroma of freshly squeezed lime in these cookies will ignite your food fantasies. While certainly celebrations and sweet items go together, this is just the beginning of my annual jamboree.
