Recipe – Almond Cookies

I love almonds, but as I cracked a tooth in half eating them, I need to come up with a method a bit less harsh on the chompers. I tried the below and they came out ok. 

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups almonds
  • 3/4 stick butter
  • 1 egg
  • 15 packets Splenda

Preheat oven to 325. Grind up almonds in a food processor. I tried a blender – too much work. Mix the ingredients by hand until you’ve got a nice gooey consistancy. Roll into balls, place on greased cookie sheet, flatten the balls to a cookie-like shape and thickness, and bake for 20 minutes. Real world testing by my 8-year old daughter elicited the following comment: “I didn’t like the almonds in it.” I promised her I would leave the almonds out the next time I made them 😉
