Giada De Laurentiis' Easy & Delicious Fruity Dessert Only Takes 15 Minutes to Put Together

The holidays are mere weeks away, and we all have two things on our minds: food and gifts. Both are synonymous with the annual festivities and are something we, personally, always look forward to. If you’re struggling to find any worthy gift or stocking stuffers ideas for your friends or family, we have a suggestion: give the gift of food this holiday season. This year, why not whip up some delicious baked goods to give to someone special in your life (and as an added bonus, you’ll have cookies leftover for yourself). We found the perfect recipe, courtesy of Giada De Laurentiis, that will bring a smile to whoever receives the baked goods: Chewy Almond and Cherry Thumbprint Cookies.

On Nov 17, De Laurentiiis shared a photo of some mouth-watering cookies with the caption, “These Chewy Almond & Cherry Thumbprint Cookies are a delicious and classic flavor combo. They’re perfectly sweet, and the almond flour gives them such a great texture – and happens to make them totally gluten free!”

While ours might not look exactly like the chef’s cookies (or hey, maybe yours will!), the taste of the snack is the kicker. De Laurentiis’ cookies have a mix of almond and cherry — two flavor staples around the holidays.

To make the recipe, you’ll need a rimmed baking sheet and 15 minutes to prep — just to name a few. The quick and easy prep time is just one of the many reasons these cookies are fantastic.

Honestly, most of us have embraced our inner chef during the pandemic, and now is the time to put those skills to use and make something delicious.

Just make sure you get some must-have recipes like almond flour, honey, limoncello, kosher salt, and more!
