These Grinch Christmas Cookie Recipe are not only simple to make, but we love that they don’t make enough to feed an army like some recipes do. That allows us to use moderation when it comes to cookie consumption during December!

2 1/4cupsall purpose flour
green food coloring
First cream together butter, 1 egg, and sugar.
Now add vanilla and cinnamon.
Grind up almonds so you get 2/3 cup (sliced, slivered, etc.). We use a mini food processor, but you could just as easily put them in a Ziploc bag and roll a rolling pin back and fourth until they are ground up.
Add almonds, flour, and food coloring. Wrap with plastic wrap and refrigerate 3 hours.
On floured surface, roll chilled dough until you can work it. We used a Linzer Cookie Cutter (only $5.99) to make these.Remember: You will need to cut out as many bottoms as you do tops (the ones with the circle cut out of the center. Using the right cutter this goes really fast!
Put cookies on parchment lined cookie sheets and bake at 250 F for 11 minutes. Allow to cool for 2 minutes on the cookie sheet and then put them on a cooling rack to cool completely.
Once the cookies are completely cooled spread about 1 1/2 teas of strawberry jam on the bottom cookie. Then put the heart-cut-out top on.
