Almond & spice filled honey-drenched cookies

With my son coming home for a visit after many months I am baking his favorite cookies, travados. As the enticing aromas of cinnamon and cloves permeate my kitchen they evoke such nostalgia of his childhood growing up in Zimbabwe.

These irresistible nutty indulgences are a staple in Rhodesli homes often served with a cup of coffee or as that sweet something after a meal.

I have tweaked this recipe adding olive oil, fresh orange juice and semolina for a crumblier cookie and simplified the honey syrup coating.

Try these super easy to make crunchy delights. You may prefer to enjoy the travados without the syrup as my son does - simply dust with confectioner’s sugar. Either way these scrumptious cookies keep for weeks!
