Three-ingredient Almond Crackle Cookies and A Little Side Eye From Juliet

Three-ingredient Almond Crackle Cookies and A Little Side Eye From Juliet

It is turn-on-the-air conditioner hot here in Huntington Beach. Even tiny Juliet who thrives on two long walks a day just stares at me in disgust when I pick up her leash. Here she is giving me some too-hot-to-walk side eye.

It’s certainly not cooking weather, either.

But, what are you going to do when you reach for a midday cookie and the jar is empty?

This Dorie Greenspan-inspired cookie is a perfect solution: Three ingredients. Twenty minutes in the oven. And voila–delicate caramel almond cookies!

I’m thinking these cookies would be good dipped in a little chocolate.

And by the way, there is nothing wrong with pairing these delicious cookies with a cup of steaming hot tea on a hot day. According to NPR’s Joe Palca, our tongues have a receptor (the TRPV1 receptor) that registers a hot beverage (or a chili pepper for that matter) and signals our brain that we need to sweat to cool down. That’s a good thing because cookies just have to be washed down with a cup of hot tea in my world.

Now I need to deal with that side eye. Maybe sweet Juliet just needs a cookie and a hug.
