EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

If you use salted almond butter, omit the sea salt.

Make ahead and freeze for longer storage. Cookies can be frozen for up to 2 months. Thaw before eating.

To toast almonds, sprinkle in ungreased heavy skillet. Cook over medium-low heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently until browning begins, then stirring constantly until golden brown.
