I love almonds and these cookies are a perfect tribute to my favorite nut.  They are a lovely chewy cookie with great almond flavor and a crispy exterior. The cookie gets it’s delicious flavor from almond butter, almond extract and chopped almonds. I think they are just delicious and so perfect with your favorite tea.

Yield about 20 large cookies


  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups dark brown sugar (firmly packed)
  • 1 cup creamy almond butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons almond extract
  • 3/4 cup chopped almonds


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.  In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt.  Using a mixer with the paddle attachment, blend melted butter, brown sugar, almond butter and honey until smooth and creamy.  Add eggs and almond extract until well incorporated.  Next add flour mixture and chopped almonds until well combined.  Take a heaping tablespoon of cookie dough and roll in the palm of your hand.  Place on prepared cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.  Bake for 10-12 minutes until cookies begin to crackle and tops are slightly golden. Remove from oven and allow to cool before transferring to cooling rack to cool completely.  Enjoy!
