Nut Butter Cookies
1 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 cups almond butter OR smooth peanut butter
2 tsp vanilla OR 1/2 tsp almond flavoring
2 1/2 cups flour
1 1/4 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
extra sugar for rolling
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cream together butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add almond butter and mix thoroughly. Beat in eggs one at a time. Stir in vanilla. Combine flour, baking powder and baking soda. Add to butter mixture in three additions, mixing well after each addition. Form dough into small balls (about an inch or so), roll in sugar and place on parchment-lined baking sheets (resist the urge to flatten them!). Bake for about 11 minutes, until edges are just beginning to brown. Be careful not to overbake. Remove from oven, allowing cookies to cool slightly before removing to wire rack. Makes about four dozen cookies.
