Almond Shortbread Owls
Almond Shortbread Owls are super cute Fall treats. I love to make these owl cookies when my kids friends come for a playdate. I serve them up with glasses of milk and they always go down a treat. What is it about owls that everyone loves I wonder? They’re just the cutest!
These cookies are very easy to make. Start by making a shortbread cookie. The main thing when it comes to this recipe is the decoration. I use leftover shortbread to make dough eyes for the owls. I insert a chocolate chip into each one to make them look like eyes. I use a whole almond for the owl beaks, sunflower seeds for the toes and 3 sliced almonds for each wing.
