I will start with a disclaimer. I have a nephew who is visiting from California with his family and I wanted to make cookies for them. They do not get out here at Christmas so... I decided to make Christmas Cookies. The Bulls Eye, Snow Balls, and Anginettes were baked. Even the Seven Layer, AKA Rainbow Cookies, were baked.
I decided to go with the red, white, and blue theme instead of the Christmas red and green. I even baked a couple of new recipes. The Italian Lemon Braided Cookie and the Pistachio Ricotta Cookie. Add some Jordan Almonds and it looked like a Wedding Cookie Tray!
Welcome to Connecticut!

I used this recipe, but I used Almond Paste in place of the Almond Filling. I liked the results.
