Almond Butter Cookies Recipe

Publisher Photo
I came up with this cookie recipe as a way to capture a butter cake popular in my husband's native Netherlands. Almond paste and butter make each melt-in-your-mouth morsel irresistible.

Haven,t made it yet:what is the difference between almond paste and almond butter? Can get butter at my grocery. How do I substitute?

I LOVE LOVE LOVE these cookies!I would make these monthly if I could. They are delicious with a glass of cold milk. Easy to make!

MY REVIEW

I agree with LegalSec. Tried adding flour, then confectioners sugar, then freezing the dough. Just doesn't come out right, and too greasy. I make a lot of things with almond paste and I was really disappointed.

MY REVIEW

I was excited about making these cookies. Such a disappointment. The cookies resemble a snickerdoodle in the picture, trust me they did not. They were flat, greasy and undercooked even when I cooked for additional time. Would not make again.
