Souvenir #4- Cookies from Rocamadour

"My best souvenir from France was cookies from Rocamadour -- I think they were made of almonds and sugar -- brown and crispy.  Absolutely delicious, and have never found a recipe for them."
Karen B., Canada

Rocamadour has attracted visitors for its incredible setting in a gorge above a tributary of River Dordogne. One of the local specialties is Foie Gras, but this area is also known for its walnuts, hazelnuts and almonds which make various delicious  crunchy biscuits called "Croquants" ("Crunchy" in French)
