Scatter almond petals evenly over the surface of the dough.

Grease the cookies gently with whipped protein and sprinkle on top of the sugar that you have poured from the total at the beginning.

When I need to organize my thoughts and ideas, I bake cookies, which are cut with molds. When I did not cope with the next technical device, I take out the waffle iron — it always submits to me. When you need to calm down internally, bake cupcakes.
Tune in for the holiday — cakes.
This kind of baking therapy turns out. ”
