For the Love of a Successful Try

I love to try new ways of being creative, but somehow I have never associated this with cooking… until last week’s visit to Santa Fe, New Mexico, when I made a batch of cookies with no recipe. (gasp) The best part about that is how perfect and delicious they were. So in honor of trying new things, (and because a few friends asked me) here’s the recipe using what was on hand. These are not super sweet- more along the lines of a nutty biscotti taste- add more sugar if you want them sweeter. xxoo Yabette

almond butter cookies

Almond butter cookies

1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup almond butter (I prefer organic raw)

1/2 cup deep dark brown sugar

1/4 cup coconut sugar

1 tsp pure vanilla

2 eggs

1/2 tsp baking soda

1 tsp baking powder

dash of sea salt

dash of cinnamon

1 and 1/4 cup sprouted wheat flour

1/4 cup raw crushed almonds

MIX IN STANDARD COOKIES WAY: mix the dry ingredients and set side- whip butter, and add sugar, almond butter, vanilla, eggs, then dry ingredient mix

drop spoonfulls on cookie sheet

Bake for 7-8 minutes in 375 degree oven (This worked for me in high altitude area, so it may be different if you are not on a mountain top)

Enjoying them in Santa Fe sunshine is optional!santa fe window sm
