Flourless Almond Butter Cup Cookies

August 2, 2010

Still on my gluten-free kick, I stumbled across a brilliant flourless cookie recipe  on Joy the Baker (5 ingredients!) and decided to reinterpret and jazz up based on my own preferences/tastes. Instead of pb&j, I did almond butter and dark chocolate. What’s not to love?

Flourless Almond Butter Cup Cookies


Ingredients! So so simple.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Grease a baking sheet with butter and set aside.

In a mixer combine peanut butter and sugars until well combined, about 2 minutes.

Add egg and baking soda and mix for another 2 minutes.  The dough will be crumbly.

Side note–I chose the dark chocolate lovers bar from Trader Joe’s. One of the best.

Roll into teaspoon sized balls and make a small indentation in the center of the dough ball with your pointer finger. Fill the depression with a piece of chocolate.

Bake for 12 minutes, until lightly browned.  Cool on a baking sheet for two minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool.

I brought these to my internship office on my last day (Randi Hiller Casting, what what!), and they were a HUGE hit. The almond butter had a lovely subtlety that offset the rich chocolate perfectly. This combo could work equally well with peanut butter, so whatever suits your fancy!
