Published in the Star Advertiser on March 11, 2015.
1 cup almond butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup brown sugar, lightly packed
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 large egg, beaten
1 cup chopped dark chocolate
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, add almond butter, baking soda, brown sugar and egg. Mix well. Fold in chocolate pieces until combined. Scoop dough, about 1 1/2 tablespoons each, onto prepared baking sheet, gently pressing down with the back of a spoon to lightly flatten. Bake 8 to 10 minutes for soft and chewy or up to 12 minutes for crispy cookies. Allow cookies to cool for 10 minutes on baking sheet before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Store cookies covered at room temperature for up to seven days or in the freezer for 3 months. Makes 1 dozen.
