Do you ever wake up and just have to bake?
Say hello to Croq-Télé. These sandy, crumbly, French almond cookies (the French really have a way with almonds in baked goods) are pretty hard to beat for the ease-of-making/tastiness/munchability ratio they have going on. That’s not really a ratio, is it? Oh well, these are good. Make them. Eat them. Impress people who like delicious things.

sandy sugary almondy goodness
they’re so cute!
make sure to test a few for “quality control”
These were ridiculously easy and satisfying. Please try making them!
*You can find blanched slivered almonds at Trader Joe’s. You can also blanch whole, raw almonds by bring a pot of water to a boil, and dumping the almonds in for one minute (don’t go over a minute, you don’t want to cook them.) After draining the almonds, you will find the skins loose and easily removable. It’s a tedious process, and makes me feel like a prep cook, but sometimes it’s what you gotta do.
