Cinnamon Almond Shortbread Paleo Cookies

When I was younger, there was nothing much better to me than a chocolate chip cookie. I used to think my relatives were crazy – during the Christmas cookie exchanges they’d go for the snickerdoodles and sugar cookies, etc. I wanted all the chocolate.

But lesson 328 that no one ever tells you about growing up: one day you’re going to be craving the shortbread cookies.

And if you are doing Whole 30 and still want to partake in the holidays, you’ll be craving cinnamon almond shortbread paleo cookies.

Don’t get me wrong – I still love chocolate. But for some reason there’s nothing better than a shortbread cookie. Maybe with a cup of tea or hot chocolate?
