Almond Butter Cookies - vegan friendly
I'm back in baking action!! Wooohooo! We finally had a relaxing weekend where we weren't rushing around. Ahhhh did it feel good. One of the things I wanted to do this weekend was experiment with some jars of creamy almond butter that MaraNatha sent to me. I was so excited when they asked if I'd give their nut butters a try!! I heart nut butters!
I also heart PB cups... so I figured I'd make an inside out almond butter cup cookie as my first experiment :) This is for a small batch so totally double it unless you're making just enough for yourself and your sweetie :) Oh and a bonus, these are vegan!
