Salted Almond Butter Cookies with Chocolate Chunks...

Looking for something sweet and deliciously different to welcome fall? These cookies are one of our favorite recipes from Almonds: Recipes, History, Culture. They’re perfect for a crowd and a wonderful alternative to your average chocolate chip cookie. Fresh, creamy butter flecked with fleur de sel is a luxurious European tradition, often enjoyed slathered on a fresh baguette. Sea salt loves sugar, balancing sweetness and prodding us to have more. In this recipe, flakes of fleur de sel are whipped into the cookie batter, where they remain intact, complementing the golden flavor of the almond butter and studding the dough with tiny, crunchy bursts of salt. 1¾ cups (255 g) unbleached all-purpose flour 2 teaspoons baking soda ½ teaspoon salt 1 cup (225 g) unsalted butter, softened 1 cup (220 g) firmly packed dark brown sugar ¾ cup (180 g) granulated...

Reviews & Praise
