Creating these Almond Butter Blossom Cookies

The classic cookie is made with peanut butter and while I love peanut butter, I also really love almond butter!

Any nut butter may be used in this recipe. Whatever you choose, it’s a must make for the holiday season and a quintessential Christmas cookie!

I made these for a Christmas party the other day and everyone absolutely loved them!

This recipe makes 3 dozen cookies, so if there are any leftovers, they make for a great freezer friendly cookie as well!

  • Almond butter
  • Shortening ( Such as Crisco)
  • Dark brown sugar
  • White sugar (granulated sugar)
  • Eggs
  • Milk
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Flour
  • Baking Soda
  • Baking Powder
  • Cinnamon
  • Salt

How to make Almond Butter Blossoms:

  • Preheat oven to 375°F
  • In a stand mixer or hand mixer, mix almond butter, shortening, dark brown sugar and white sugar together. Once nicely mixed, add in 2 eggs, milk & vanilla. Mix well.
  • In a separate large bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and salt together. Then stir into the almond butter mixture.
  • Roll dough into small balls, and then coat in the granulated sugar. Place on cookie sheet (spray with non stick baking spray,) or line a baking sheet with a Silpat and repeat until cookie dough is gone! Tip: if needed, dust hands with flour before rolling so cookie dough doesn’t stick!
  • Bake in the oven for 11-13 minutes. Immediately after removing from the oven, press a chocolate kiss in the center of each cookie. Let cool completely. ENJOY
