Almond Butter Cookies
Almond Butter Cookies:
6 Tbsp. Butter
2 Tbsp. Reduced fat cream cheese
1/2 cup Almond butter
1/3 cup White sugar
1/2 cup Brown sugar, packed
3/4 tsp. Baking soda
1/2 tsp. Vanilla extract
2 cups Flour
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. With an electric mixer, beat butter, cream cheese and almond butter until creamy. Add sugars and baking soda. Add egg and vanilla. Gradually add flour until a soft dough is formed.
the above picture is without flour, the picture below is what you dough will look like with flour.
Form dough into 1 inch balls. I like to use a melon baller. The melon baller makes the cookies all the same shape and size. Mine is from Pampered Chef, I really like it, just remember to give it a shot of Pam before you begin.
Place on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 8-10 minutes or until just firm. Remove cookie sheets from oven and immediately place one Hershey kiss in the center of each cookie.
