Almond butter cookies are a great, delicious alternative to peanut butter cookies.
These almond butter cookies are what my Mom would call a “Cup of Tea Cookie”. Meaning obviously, that it is an ideal treat to be enjoyed with your favourite steaming cup of relaxing tea.
This one is soft and slightly chewy, with a distinct almond nutty flavour. I always eat the edges first to save the toasted almond at the centre for last.
This is a very versatile recipe too. Use practically any nut butter to make your favourite version.
Cashew butter is amazing in this recipe too.
