almond butter cookies


At first glance of the recipe, I thought there was a misprint because I didn't see flour on the ingredients list nor the directions. Realizing that it was part of NPR's Baking Without Flour Brings Sweet Results story, I was reassured there was no mistake. I was really surprised by the flavor and texture of the cookies, who would have guessed there was neither butter nor flour in these! Delicious!
