I had never even tasted almond butter and I bought my first jar this morning ... it won't be my last.   It's hideously expensive, but worth it.    This recipe is on www.mybaki

I had never even tasted almond butter and I bought my first jar this morning ... it won't be my last.   It's hideously expensive, but worth it.    This recipe is on www.mybakingaddiction.com
While ago I stirred up the batter for

ALMOND BUTTER COOKIES
3 doz -- 12-15 minutes - 350*

1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 cup lightly packed light brown sugar
1 1/2 cups Jif Crunchy Almond Butter ]
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups quick cooking oatmeal
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

1. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle
attachment or in a large bowl with an electric mixer,
cream butter, sugar, brown sugar and almond butter
until light and fluffy - about 2 minutes. Beat in eggs
one at a time and add vanilla extract, mixing until incorporated.
2. In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking soda and salt.
Gradually add the dry ingredients to the mixer until they are
thoroughly combined. Mix in oats and chocolate chips.

Cover and chill dough for at least 3 hours or up to 2 days.

3. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees
and line baking sheets with parchment paper. Using a medium
cookie scoop (1 1/2 tablespoons), scoop cookie dough onto
prepared baking sheets.
Bake in preheated oven for 12 - 15 minutes, or until edges
are golden brown. Allow cookies to cool on cookie sheets
for 5 minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.

I tasted the dough and fell in love .   I can't wait to bake this tomorrow afternoon.

Almond butter and cashew butter are two very dangerous items to have in the house.  So easy to eat by the spoonful. 
Check the brands of almond butter there are several kinds so prices may be different.  If you know any one that has a Sam's club or Costco membership ask them to pick up some Almond butter for you much less expensive there than a grocery store. 
Let me/us know how the cookies turn out.

P.S. I am a huge fan of peanut butter, but recently converted to almond butter. I enjoy some on my toast every day!

I got up early hoping I could try at least one baking sheet-full before heading to church ... lol .... what a bad attitude.   So I have to rush off for a fast shower.

I've been so disappointed in recent new recipes.... I hope I'm not too excited by this one.

Well - I just ate my first Almond Butter cookie -- very first time I ever tasted almond butter.
It is a very pretty cookie - it spreads out just a bit but mostly holds its shape - I like that.
I does taste good -very good, but I really can't tell the difference between almond and peanut butter.  I was expecting a dramatic difference and didn't get it.  Almond butter costs SO much --- I'm not totally convinced it's worth it.
I'll carry some to church this morning  and ask for opinions.
Verlee, your opinion that it is worth the difference  so I will try another recipe

Well you can look at it this way...the cookies are less expensive per cookie than you originally thought!
Or You get to eat the extra and still have 69 cookies to give away.....

Nancy, I just copied the recipe.  Looks good.  That seems like a lot of almond butter in the recipe.  I don't remember peanut butter cookies having that much peanut butter in them.  Of course it has been a while since I've made peanut butter cookies.
