Cherry Blossom Cookies...pinned it and tried it

These were fun to make!

I love the pretty colors, just perfect for a Valentine treat.

I made them for church, so we only sampled a few. They were like a shortbread cookie. I loved the cherry along with the almond flavor. Of course adding the chocolate made the combo even better!
