I am a huge lover of all things with almonds, especially almond flour! I love not only the flavor of almond flour, but I also love that it has some of those healthy almond fats in it which totally makes everything have the softest texture, including these almond birds nest cookies! Another key ingredient in these babies are the eggs I used, which are Eggland’s Best Eggs. There is nothing more satisfying them cracking one open and seeing the rich, deep color of the yolk. When eggs have this deep color, like Eggland’s Best Eggs always do, it means that the hens who laid the eggs were fed a high quality diet. That said, I promise these pillowy soft cookies will NOT disappoint you!
