This is the second day of what appears to be a baking streak. Yesterday I made a peach pie after purchasing a large amount of peaches at a wholesale produce store. I have eaten a lot of pie since yesterday. I am ashamed :( So I have no idea why I had the desire to bake again today. I looked up a recipe for almond cookies since I love almonds!!! <3 I also have a jar of almond butter and was super excited to find a recipe that incorporated almond butter and maple syrup...double, double yummmmmmmm!!!!!

Maple Almond Butter Cookies
I used this recipe but changed it up a tiny bit.
1/2 cup natural almond butter
1/2 cup maple syrup
3 tablespoons melted butter (the recipe online used vegetable oil)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup unbleached pastry flour (the recipe online used whole wheat pastry flour which I did not have on hand)
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped almonds

I mixed the almond butter, maple syrup, butter, and vanilla extract in the kitchenaid.  In a separate bowl I mixed the dry ingredients. I gradually added the dry ingredients to the almond mixture, then added the chopped almonds.  I baked them at 350 for about 10 minutes. 

The result = delicious!!!!! The house smelled beautifully, you would not believe!!! The girls loved them and I suggest if you love maple syrup and almond butter as I do...try it out.

Lots of love,
Mon <3
