Almond Butter Kisses Cookie Recipe
Christmas cookie baking day is one of my favorite parts of the holidays. I love the smell of cookies baking all day long with holiday music playing and the entire family and our friends working together to make some tasty treats!
Peanut butter kisses were always one of my favorites to make with my parents and grandparents growing up along with my grandmother's M&M Christmas cookies. After my son was born we found out he was severely allergic to peanuts which came as a total shock. I have been a major peanut butter love my whole life and I had to remove it completely from our home. Lucky for us he is not allergic to tree nuts so we are able to substitute almond butter and other choices. A few years ago I took the recipe for Peanut Butter Kisses and substituted almond butter and them came out amazing. My son who refuses all kinds of "butter" substitutes enjoys these cookies and I catch him trying to sneak them all the time just like I did as a child! Plus they are pretty darn close to the original peanut butter ones, to the point that I have actually grown to enjoy this option more. Feel free to substitute any other type of "butter" option that will work for your family. These make perfect gifts for teachers, friends and family and they were featured on a Cape Kids Cast where Ethan touts them as a great peanut free option.
