With the 100-year anniversary of Diamond of California Nuts at hand, I began a search through my recipe box for one of my favorite treasured family recipes: Almond Snowcap Cookies. My mom baked them as part of our holiday cookie tradition when I was a child.
I’m not sure if you’re like me about nuts. (It’s kinda my specialty seeing as how I am one.) But when it comes to baking, I only use premium nuts because the freshness and quality do make a difference in the taste. That’s why I trusted this recipe to Diamond Nuts.
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup seedless raspberry jam (can substitute with other flavors)
3 egg whites
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 cup Diamond of California sliced almonds (found in baking aisle)
The Almond Snowcap Cookie recipe comes from my mom, but if you love baking with nuts for the holidays, you should take a peek through the Diamond of California classic family recipes for even more ideas.
