It’s Saturday night and I’m looking at these pictures of my day, wondering when I grew up so fast. I look at myself and I see my face getting older. I don’t feel disappointed by this. Just taken aback in a strange way. Hmm.
The food gods must have taken pity on me after yesterday’s pumpkin fiasco. I’ve had a lonely jar of almond butter sitting in my cabinet and un-used jars of nut butters are a sad shame. Born of this disgrace? Almond Butter Cookies.
1/4 c. butter (I used Earth Balance)
1/4 c. almond butter
2 tsp. almond extract
1 1/4 c. flour (I used an all-purpose and coconut mix)
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1 c. packed brown sugar
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Mix wet and dry ingredients. Form into small balls and flatten with a fork. Bake for 15 minutes.
I’m inordinately happy these turned out. It’s the little things in life.
