These little cookies are the little black dress of your recipe box. They're easy to pull off, can be dressed up – spread some MaraNatha® Dark Chocolate Almond Spread  between two cookies and serve with ice cream for a quick dinner party dessert – or dressed down – just bake as instructed, and they are always a classic treat. The cookies are also great to get little hands involved in the process, they'll love to roll the dough into a ball before they're baked. I'll bet you'll find requests for these popping up fairly frequently after you make the first batch. 

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350˚ and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Combine the almond butter and the suger in a bowl and use an electric mixer to beat together.
  3. Add the egg, vanilla, baking soda and salt and mix to incorporate.
  4. Finally, fold in the peanut butter chips an stir so they're evenly distributed.
  5. Spoon out a tablespoon at a time and roll into a ball. Place each cookie on the prepared baking sheet, about 2" apart.
  6. Place in the oven and bake for 8 - 10 minutes until cookies are just turning brown. Let cool for 5 minutes before removing from the baking sheet.
