Ingredients

  • 2 cups Diamond of California® Whole Almonds
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature (2 sticks = 1 cup)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp salt, plus more for sprinkling

The Steps

  1. Place all of the almonds in a food processor and pulse until smooth. This will take about 15 minutes and you may need to add a tablespoon of canola or coconut to thin it out.
  2. If the almond butter is too hot, allow it to cool down before using it for the cookies.
  3. Place the butter, almond butter, sugar and brown sugar in a mixing bowl and use the paddle attachment to mix until fluffy, about 5 minutes.
  4. Add the eggs and mix until incorporated.
  5. Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda and ¾ tsp salt bowl and mix until just combined.
  6. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  7. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  8. Place 1 tsp balls of dough on the baking sheet and press down with a fork to flatten and create a criss-cross pattern. Sprinkle with remaining salt.
  9. Bake for 10 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack.
