Almond Butter + Jam Cookies



Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or a Silpat and set to the side.
Whisk together flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl.
In a mixer bowl, or a large bowl, mix together the butter, almond butter, 3/4 cup sugar and light brown sugar until smooth.
Add the egg and vanilla and beat until blended.
Gradually add the dry mixture until just mixed through.
Put the remaining 1/4 cup regular sugar into a small bowl.
(Note: you can also use powdered sugar with chocolate Kiss centers.
Or, if youre not making the jam middles, you can also use icing and sprinkles.
) Make medium-sized balls, ensuring they are all pretty consistent in size, and place on the cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.
You should be able to fit about 12 onto one cookie sheet.
Roll each ball into the sugar and press down just a bit onto the cookie sheet.
Make an indentation in the middle of the balls with the handle of a spoon, or your own method, and place a good-sized dollop of jam in the center of each one.
Bake for 12-14 minutes until crackly and just set.
Let cool on a cookie sheet and enjoy with coffee or tea!
