I absolutely LOVE firing up the oven and baking this time of the year. There’s nothing like the anticipation of taking freshly baked goodies out of the oven. Another bonus is they make your home small wonderful! I love cookies, all types of cookies, but sometimes I crave one (or two) that are on the lesser guilty side. These Almond Butter Cookies are just that and then some. They are still decadent and completely delicious, but I snuck in some whole wheat pastry flour to add to both the flavor and nutritional profile. They are also jam packed with almonds…I used a natural almond butter and ground almonds to make this cookie fix extra special!
