The credit for these cookies goes to Siobhan over at Food Fixe. So smart – neither Larry or I like peanut butter cookies very much, so why not use almond butter?
I skipped the chocolate dipped part of the recipe, only because I was lazy. I think a bit of chocolate coating on these cookies would be terrific. And I used Maldon salt, sprinkled on top just as the cookies came out. The texture is softer than a peanut butter cookie, but I like the flavor of the almond butter. And look at how puffy they are! Cookies that aren’t flat!
This recipe got me thinking about using other nut butters – I’d definitely like to try cashew butter and sunflower seed butter. And I’ve got some marcona almond butter that I think would be great. I love that Siobhan’s version of this recipe was inspired by Big Girls Small Kitchen… which was inspired by a recipe by Alice Medrich. This is why I love the cooking community – creativity and inspiration.
