I actually made these almond butter cookies a couple of weeks ago, but as I had other recipes to write and then all the Daylesford posts, I’ve only just gotten around to doing it now (oops).
I’ve asked on Twitter a couple of times what kind of recipes you guys like best, and cookies are always one of the replies I get back. I had only posted the one cookie recipe (my Peanut Butter & Chocolate Chunk Cookies) so I thought I had better make another, stat! These cookies are amazing – melt in your mouth, sweet, and buttery.
I hadn’t actually used almond extract before – but it gave these cookies such a lovely flavour, I can’t wait to use it again. I also purchased a coconut extract, which I’m really excited to use for a new recipe! You’ll have to keep an eye out for it when I figure out what to make with it.
Most, if not all, of the ingredients used for these almond butter cookies are ones likely to already be in your kitchen, which is one of my favourite things about it. I love it when I want to make something and realise I already have all the ingredients, which means I can stay in my pyjamas and my Boston Terrier patterned socks all day instead of running down to the grocery store. Yesss!
If you’re a fan of cookies, this is definitely one you have to try. I’m so pleased with how the almond extract turned out and I can’t wait to use it again! In fact, I’m tempted to make them again right now… hmmm.
As always, let me know what you thought of this recipe, and please leave me any recipe requests or suggestions!
What is your favourite kind of cookie?
