Douce France: Almond cookie

On Tuesday afternoon, I decided to stop by Douce France and check out the pastry selection.  After looking at the fruit tarts, I suddenly saw some cookies in the top right of the glass case that looked remarkably similar to my beloved almond croissants.  For $1.45, one of these almond cookies came home with me, and I'm glad it did.  This cookie is crisp, but with a satisfying chewiness, and is not too sweet.  It's essentially a coconut macaroon where the coconut has been replaced with slivered/toasted almonds.  Highly recommended!
