I made this cookie today. I didn't have almond extract, so used a little extra vanilla extract. Loved this cookie and can't wait to try it with the almond extract! I need yo stop eating them now. I had to call my step son and promise to bring him some so I wouldn't eat them all! They are delicious!
Great taste. I made two changes. I cooked the balls without pressing them down with a fork. I added Hershey Kisses with Almonds right after they came out of the oven. They are much better than peanut butter blossoms. I did not have the almond extract. With half of the 48 cookies, I rolled the cookie balls in finely chopped raw natural almonds. Next time I will use the almond extract. I will call them Almond Butter Blossoms.
Great Cookie!!! My son LOVES them, My only complaint is that even though the cookie dough smelled and tasted beautifully like almonds ..... the taste was a little lost as they cooked. But definitely a cookie that I will continue to make!
I really liked these,something different from peanut butter cookies.These are very delicious.Next time I'd make them a little smaller because they do tend to spread out and stick together when they're bigger.
These are SO much better than peanut butter cookies. The smell and taste of the almond extract is heaven. Two thumbs up! Thanks for posting!!
Turned out great for me! Definitely better than plain old peanut butter cookies.
These cookies have great flavor. Made as listed, but using a 1-inch scoop, they turned out to be 5-inch wafers. I ended up adding about a 1/2 cup more flour after baking one batch... and then they turned out looking more like traditional peanut butter cookies (about 2 1/2 inches across). Both the wafers and thicker cookies were good, but the first batch spread out and stuck together. Maybe I didn't beat until fluffy enough. I'll make these again!
Excellent cookie!!! Very rich and chewy. With the almond butter and almond extract, it gives such a gourmet flavor. I blind taste-tested my husband and he thought they were amaretto liquor cookies. So the almond really comes through!
a very good cookie!! unfortunatly, I had to throw out my first batch after adding the egg; I'm lucky enough to get farm fresh eggs from my mom's friend and the first egg was off... but my second attempt was successful, with a nice light cookie with a nice almond flavour
