BUTTER HONEY COOKIES
Trader Joe's Market is my favorite place to shop. They are creative,
innovative and up-to-the-minute with new products and trends. One of their
latest is Almond Butter available in different forms, salted and unsalted,
crunchy and smooth.
2-1/2 C. wholewheat pastry flour
1-1/2 t. baking powder
1/4 t. baking soda
1/2 c. sweet butter
1/2 c. crunchy, unsalted almond butter
1/4 c. packed brown sugar
1/3 c. honey
1/2 t. almond extract
1. Stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda; set aside.
2. Cream butter and almond butter until light and fluffy. Beat in sugar,
honey, egg and almond extract until well mixed.
3. Stir in flour mixture.
4. Shape in roll 12 inches long; wrap and chill thoroughly. Cut in 1/4-inch
slices. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet in preheated 400 degrees oven 8-10
minutes or just until edges are slightly brown.
