We had invited a couple of friends over for dinner yesterday, and, for a change, the men had the pleasure of cooking, while the women had to make do with the consolation prize of spreading out on the couch and watching a movie. The food was delicious, but the kitchen was left a complete and utter mess.
So, after spending half the night cleaning up, my kitchen looked again like "my" kitchen. And to celebrate the spring cleaning, I made these cookies today. As I have mentioned in a previous post, saffron is my absolute favourite spice. It combines very well with Almonds and Pistachios, the flavor as well as the colour.
