Dark Chocolate Dipped Almond Butter Cookies with Rose Salt
Makes about 15 cookies
1/2 cup organic almond butter (at room temperature)
Half cup organic unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/2 cup super fine sugar
1 organic large egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Half teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/4 cups organic all-purpose flour, sifted
One teaspoon rose salt or fine salt
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
In a bowl of a stand mixer fit with a paddle attachment, cream the almond butter, butter, brown sugar, and sugar for about 2 minutes. Add the egg and vanilla extract and continue to beat until fully incorporated. Using a separate bowl, mix together the baking soda, baking powder, and flour. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the bowl of the stand mixer while on low speed until just combined.
*Note: If you are short on time, simply add 1/2 teaspoon of rose salt and the dark chocolate chips to the cookie dough at this point for Dark Chocolate Chip Almond Butter Cookies with Rose Salt…they are super tasty as well!
Roll into heaping tablespoon-sized balls and place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Flatten with a fork in a criss-cross fashion. Bake for about 6 minutes until the edges are just golden. Cool on a wire rack for about 5-10 minutes before dipping in the dark chocolate.
In a small saucepan, place the dark chocolate chips over low heat and begin mixing immediately. Continue to stir until the chips just melt then remove from heat and continue to stir. Once the chocolate has become glossy, dip one side of each cookie into the chocolate. Place the cookies on a piece of parchment paper to cool. Sprinkle with a touch of rose salt.
