How to Make BONNIE'S ALMOND JOY COOKIES--Gluten-Free
1Assemble all ingredients. Bring egg and molasses and almond butter to room temperature. I use air baking pans with parchment paper. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2Mix all the dry ingredients together in a medium mixing bowl.
3Note. Do not skip the step of pulsing the sugar to powder.
4Mix the wet ingredients in a small bowl: Combine the melted warm butter with the almond butter and molasses, and stir until well mixed, then add the vanilla and egg white.
5Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients, and add the wet ingredients, and mix well by hand with a spatula.
6Use a one-inch scoop for scooping the dough into your hand.
7Make a ball by rolling it in your hand. Tip: Give it a couple of squeezes, and it sticks together and helps make forming the ball easier.
8Press an almond in the center of each cookie.
9Place the cookies on the parchment paper about 1 1/2 inches apart.
10Bake at 350 degrees 10 to 12 minutes, until edges start to brown. Do not overcook.
11Take a bite when no one is looking ;)
