I think we all love cookies (including biscuits and galettes). Simple, flavored, aromatic, sweet, or salty. Here is an easy recipe of Galette made with flour, almond powder and of course with orange blossom water to enhance the aroma. We used to make them all the time when I was a child. Perfect recipe to bake with children.
