My family really likes cookies. Pretty much any cookie will make them happy. I made these cookies a few years ago and brought them to the pool. One of my daughter’s friends tasted them and declared they were “magic”. Why? Because they just made her instantly happy she said. Hey, it doesn’t get much better than that.
When we were all teaching in VBS a few weeks ago, she asked when I was making some more of those “magic” cookies. The next day I brought her a batch. Her eyes literally filled with happy tears.
I don’t know if anyone else will enjoy them as much as our dear friend does, but here’s the recipe to bring a little “magic” into your day!
Loved in the South’s Magic Cookies
2 cups almond flour
1 cup Splenda
1/2 cup Torani sugar-free brown sugar cinnamon syrup
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1/2 cup lower sugar cranberries
1 1/2 to 2 tsp. orange extract (depending on how orangey you want it)
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
1 stick softened butter (the best butter is Kerrygold)
Mix the softened butter, Splenda, syrup, and almond flour together. Add the rest of the ingredients. Drop into small balls on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees until edges turn light brown. I baked them 8-10 minutes. Enjoy!
