Original recipe yields 2 dozen

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Beat shortening, almond butter, brown sugar, and white sugar in a bowl until smooth. Combine hot water, baking soda, and salt together in another bowl; stir into almond butter mixture until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla extract; beat until blended. Gradually stir in flour until dough is just blended.
  3. Roll the dough into walnut-sized balls and place 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Press and flatten balls with a fork to create a crosshatch pattern.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, 8 to 12 minutes.

This is a winner of a cookie! Has a lighter flavor than a traditional peanut butter cookie. A little gooey to work with, but worth the effort. Original recipe says '24 servings'....but I made 48 huge cookies.

These are delicious! Instead of using shortening or butter I used coconut oil. I used the same ratio and probably could have used 3/4 of a cup instead of a cup. I also used organic cane sugar. I think the key here is to use almond butter you grind yourself at the store. Over all a great recipe and awesome smells!!

My whole family LOVED these cookies. So flavorful and delicious. The only thing I changed what the time in the oven. It says 8 minutes but mine came out crispy but not burnt. I cooked the rest of my batches for 6 minutes and then took them out of the oven and sat them on the top of the oven for an additional 4 minutes. This recipe made 60 cookies for me.
