A Small Christmas Present

A few years ago Terry brought home almond butter. My lovely and talented wife understands my interest in omega-3 fats. Alas, it isn’t very good as a peanut butter substitute. What was I to do with these 32 ounce jars of almond butter?

My solution was almond butter cookies. These seem to be very popular.  Three years ago a web search showed no such recipes. Herewith is my recipe:

Mark V Almond Butter Cookies

Mark V Almond Butter Cookies

1             Cup    Almond Butter
1/2        Cup    Margarine
1/2        Cup     Sugar
1/2        Cup     Brown Sugar
1            Egg
1/2        tsp       Vanilla
1 1/4    Cup      Flour
1             tsp       Baking Soda
1/4        tsp       Salt

Oven 375 F

Cream together the almond butter, margarine, and sugars. [I use ‘I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter.’]
Mix in egg and vanilla.
Add in flour, baking soda, and NaCl.
Form into 25 mm balls and cook at 375 F for 12 to 13 Minutes. [For those who dislike Fahrenheit try 835 Rankine.]

Makes about 40.
