Almond Butter Blossom Cookies

It’s a risky task testing a cookie recipe so close to the holidays. With mere days left until Christmas I couldn’t resist sneaking in just ONE more. And am I glad that I did! These little almond butter blossom cookies complete with a dairy-free homemade chocolate are simply, perfection!

It’s a perfectly chewy and chocolatey bite-sized bit of holiday heaven. With just one bowl and a few basic ingredients you too can whip these up for your holiday gathering or gifting!

A few tips for these cookies:

  • Use a GOOD creamy almond butter. This is where most of the texture and flavor comes from so a good quality brand is key. This is my favorite!
  • Invest in a baking liner- I use this for more than just cookies and it’s amazing for creating an even, no-sticking end result.
  • You can definitely sub store bought chocolates though dairy-free can be hard to find which is partly why I make my own- it’s also much more fun! Click here for my easy recipe.
  • Although these cookies are not gluten-free you can sub in an all purpose GF baking flour (equal measurements) just know the texture will change from the original recipe.
