Not your average cookie

I love cookies during the week – actually, anytime – but especially around 2pm on a work day. They just cheer me up a bit and hold me over until it’s time to go home. I really look forward to that break and the bit of sugar. I’ve been a bit bored with our usual cookies, particularly as they can’t have chocolate in them. (Nothing with chocolate is ever boring.) So I decided to spice it up this weekend with a different nut butter – instead of peanut butter, I used almond-hazelnut butter. Um….delicious.

Ingredients:
1/2 cup of vegetable shortening
1/2cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 cup nut butter
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup oat flour
Almonds, sliced lengthwise into approximately thirds.

Method: combine dry and wet ingredients, then mix together. Place on parchment paper on a cookie sheet. Sprinkle the tops of the cookies with the almonds. Bake at 375 for approximately 10 minutes, until almonds are bronzed and the cookies are done.
