These cookies are speckled with currants and have a hint of spice....a perfect pairing to a mug of hot apple cider on a cold starry night. I have kept the sugar to a minimum but you can add up to a ¼-cup more per batch if you feel like having a sweeter cookie. I grind my raw almonds in the dry container of my Vitamix, though a coffee grinder would work too. Make sure to grind them as finely as you can without turning them all into nut butter!
