California Almonds

Ingredients

  •   Cooking spray
  • 3/4 Cups  all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 Cup  whole-wheat pastry flour, or regular whole-wheat flour
  • 3/4 Teaspoons  salt
  • 1 Teaspoon  baking soda
  • 1/4 Cup  unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 Cups  smooth, unsalted almond butter
  • 1/3 Cup  packed light brown sugar
  • 1/3 Cup  granulated sugar
  • 1/2 Teaspoon  vanilla extract
  • egg
  • 36  whole almonds, about a heaping 1/4 cup

A whole-wheat and almond butter version of the Chinese cookie classic. These treats are an ideal partner-in-cookie-crime to a cold glass of milk or a cup of afternoon tea. 

Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Spray 2 baking sheets with cooking spray.

In a large bowl whisk together the flours, salt, and baking soda. In another large bowl beat together the butter, almond butter, and sugars until fluffy. Add the vanilla and egg and beat until well combined. Gradually stir in the flour mixture, bending well.

Shape the dough into ¾-inch balls, and place on the baking sheets. Place an almond in center of each cookie and press down lightly. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack.
