This is a New Year's Eve tradition for my husband and I. It's an absolutely delicious new twist to the traditional peanut butter cookies, though they look almost exactly the same.

  • Beat butter and almond butter in a large mixing bowl with an electric mixer on medium-high speed until creamy, about 30 seconds. Beat in 1/2 cup sugar, brown sugar, baking soda, cream of tartar, and salt until thoroughly combined. Beat egg, milk, and vanilla extract into moist ingredients.

  • Beat whole wheat flour and as much of the all-purpose flour as the mixer can handle; stir remaining flour into dough.

  • Combine 3 tablespoons sugar with ground almonds in a shallow bowl. Pinch off dough and roll into 1-inch balls; roll balls in almond-sugar mixture. Place cookies 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until edges are firm and tops are cracked, 8 to 10 minutes. Immediately press a chocolate almond kiss into middle of each cookie; let cool.

I make homemade almond butter and always end up with more than I know what to do with. This recipe is the answer - yum! Will make them with toasted almonds on top next time instead of chocolate Kisses. Read More

Tasty and full of almond flavor. I did use only all-purpose flour as I didn't have any whole wheat flour on hand. Other than that I followed the recipe. They turned out a little too flat (I prefer the puff of the traditional peanut butter version) and could have been baked a few minutes more (for 12 minutes total) in my opinion. Read More

A new favorite! I was looking for something like the classic blossoms recipe that my daughter could eat.... she has a peanut allergy. These are perfect! Love them and making them again tomorrow!! Read More
