Almond butter was my new favorite discovery last Passover. Spread on matzah with a sprinkle of cinnamon and a drizzle of honey it was a breakfast/snack truly worth savoring. This year I decided to take the almond butter to the next level with these almond thumbprint cookies. These cookies are absolutely wonderful. Not only are the delicious, but they contain only four ingredients that are simply stirred together in a bowl. It is always a struggle to bake on Passover because many of us do not have the same equipment (like a kitchen aid) that we depend on year round, so it is always nice to find recipes that only require a bowl and a spoon. Quick and easy, these are sure to be a crowd pleaser.
- 1 cup almond butter
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 teaspoon salt (if using salted almond butter omit the salt)
- Chocolate non-pareils and/or jam for filling
