Almond Butter Cookies

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!

Instructions
For the cookies:
  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celsius. Line your baking trays with baking paper, and set aside.
  2. Whisk flour, sea salt, and baking powder together in a medium bowl, and set aside.
  3. Using an electric beater, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Then add the almond extract and the egg, and continue to mix until combined. Add ½ cup of the flour mixture at a time, still mixing until fully combined.
  4. Scoop out 1 tablespoon of mixture at a time - roll into a ball, and then press down on them using your palm and place on the baking paper.
  5. Bake for 12 minutes, then remove from oven. Let cool on the baking paper for 5-10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack. Let them cool completely before icing.
For the icing:
  1. Whisk together the icing sugar and milk, then add the almond extract and continue to whisk until smooth. Feel free to add either more icing sugar or milk until you achieve the consistency you desire.
  2. Use a spoon to drizzle the icing onto each cookie, and then place white chocolate chips as you desire onto the icing so they stick.
  3. Eat!


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!
