The spring and summer version of peanut butter blossoms which are a favorite of mine. These almond butter cookies are simply delicious. Easy and fun to make with kids and all 3 kids gave these a thumbs up!
I don’t know what the holdup has been but I have never tasted almond butter before. Almond butter is amazing. I love peanut butter, but almond butter is well let’s just say I could eat it by the spoonful. Oh, and almond butter + cookies = a bit o’ heaven!
My 2-year-old actually asks for peanut butter on a spoon at lunch time. She saw me grab some out of a “different jar” and was skeptical at first. However, she ate the almond butter up just as fast as she eats the peanut butter. She’s a PB and (soon to be AB) eating machine!!
Cookies Get the Gold
I am a firm chocolate cookie lover. I can see a whole table of amazing desserts and I still turn to the chocolate chip cookie(s). What other cookie compares to the chocolate chip cookie? Well, that would be peanut butter blossoms at Christmas time. They just kick butt in the cookie world. And I can’t just make peanut butter blossoms all year-long because I would not appreciate them at Christmas time.
The Solution? Almond Butter Spring Blossoms!
Oh Yaaaa! These cookies are sooo good! I mixed up the Hershey®️ kisses with KitKat®️ minis and even though the KitKats melt a little more it doesn’t even matter because they taste even better. Maybe the pictures don’t turn out quite as good, but this time that is okay. The cookies will speak for themselves! I can’t get over how delicious they are. Almonds. Good. Almond butter – fabulous! Almond butter cookies – more fabulous!🍪
Hope you give them a try! 👩🍳
