Almond Poppyseed Cookies

Almond Poppy Seed Cookies

My husband and I are house/pet sitting my parents place while they are out of town for the week.  We love my parents house. They have the BEST kitchen and lots of property so the dogs can run and play all day if they want!  Over the weekend I got my grandmas cookbook out and started browsing through her recipes to get some inspiration. Talk about memory lane! It was hard to choose where to start.  I remember these poppyseed cookies very well.  Well, I remember the frozen version.  I swear my grandma froze everything. Cheese, bread, cookies, anything she could!  These cookies are so simple to make and I love the almond flavor to them!
