Note from Ricardo

Sweet clover essence is our northern vanilla! It smells similar to vanilla, with additional notes of almond, praline and hay. Sweet clover extract is available in most gourmet food shops and Boutique RICARDO locations.

Once the cookies have frozen, transfer them to an airtight container. They will keep for 3 months. You can bake them from frozen by adding 2 to 3 minutes for a total of 12 to 15 minutes.
