Tips for making almond butter cookies:

  • Your oven may need more or less time. It is best to keep an eye on these cookies after 10 minutes to see how well they are browning.
  • If you wish, you can sprinkle with chopped almonds prior to baking.
  • Store cookies in an air tight container or bag to keep fresh. They will stay good for up to 5 days if kept in air tight storage.
