Pipe Dream #318: To Gain Taste – Dollar Store Almond Butter Cookies



When is the last time you had these chocolate coins from the dollar store? My childhood in a nutshell. They’ve not lost flavor since that time, I’ve just gained taste, so I decided that instead of eating them plain, I would incorporate them into a cookie.

Almond butter is ok. It’s like the boringer cousin of peanut butter, which I guess makes it more versatile, but like the coins, it lacks flavor? So I’m hoping to combine two wrongs here and somehow come out with a right, despite worldly wisdom.



This is literally the easiest one-bowl affair.

Make ’em yourself and tell me what you think, but I didn’t like them. Too salty, not enough chocolate. Except they were soft. Into that.


Almond Butter Cookies

Adapted from Ambitious Kitchen

1 cup all natural creamy almond butter

1/3 cup pure maple syrup

1 egg

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

about 4 ounces chocolate, chopped (preferably leftover advent calendar chocolates or chocolate coins) or jelly

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a medium mixing bowl, beat together almond butter, maple syrup, egg, vanilla, baking soda, and salt until smooth and creamy, about 2 minutes. Fold in most of the chocolate.

Drop tablespoon sized balls of dough onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, top each cookie with extra chocolate chunks or jelly and sea salt. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until cookies turn a slight golden brown underneath. Cool on the baking sheet for 10 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Repeat with remaining dough. Makes about 16.
