Almond Butter Cookies

Revised 2015 Jul 18

Yield 36 cookies


1/2 cup butter
2/3 cup almond butter
1/3 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/4 cups flour, all-purpose
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
36 almonds, toasted


Cream butters and sugars Add egg and vanilla and continue to mix.

Mix dry ingredients and add to creamed mixture. Fold until dough forms.

Make 1 inch balls (18 grams) and press each ball down sightly on a parchment lined baking sheet 2 inches apart. Press a toasted whole almond into the center of the slightly flattened dough balls before baking.

Bake 12 minutes until golden brown at the edges at 350F. Do not over bake or cookies will be brittle.

Used scant 1/3 cup of white and did not pack the brown sugar. Try less sugar, more almond butter.
