How to Make Sweet Essentials: Almond Butter Cookies


  2. In my opinion, a drizzle of fresh clover honey is an essential part of this recipe.
  3. Gather your Ingredients (mise en place).
  4. Place a rack in the middle position, and preheat the oven to 350f (175c).
  5. Mix all the ingredients together, and then place tablespoon amounts on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  6. Chef’s Note: The batter will spread out, and they will expand as they bake, so give each cookie a generous amount of space. On a full-sized baking sheet, you should have room for about 8 cookies.
  7. Place the cookies in the preheated oven, and bake for 9 – 11 minutes.
  8. Chef’s Note: I use calibrated ovens, and the cookies took exactly 10 minutes.
  9. Chef’s Tip: They are done when, the edges begin to brown, and they puff up a bit.
  10. Allow to completely cool, before serving.
  12. Serve with a drizzle of honey. Enjoy.
  13. Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
