Jif® Almond Butter Thumbprint Cookies Recipe

jif almond butter thumbrpint cookiesWe recently tried new Jif® Cashew Butter and mixed up our meal time with some help from Jif®. I’ve been dying to get in the kitchen and do some baking! So with all this fall weather I knew it was the perfect time to try and put a new twist on my Grandmother’s favorite cookie with Jif® Almond Butter.

Growing up I remember every holiday I would sit and enjoy as many of my Grandmother’s thumbprint cookies. She always used Smucker’s jams and jelly so these Jif® Almond Butter Thumbprint Cookies really bring me back.

jif almond nut cookies (5)Ingredients: 

  • 8 TBSP  of butter (soft)
  • 2/3 cup  light brown sugar
  • 1/2 TSP  salt
  • 3/4 cup Jif® Almond Butter Crunchy
  • 1 large egg
  • 12 TSP vanilla
  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 1/2 TSP baking powder
  • 1/2 TSP baking soda
  • 1/2 cup almonds (crushed)
  • Smuckers® All Natural Fruit Spread

I’m a huge fan of simple and flavorful meals and that goes the same for desert. You’ll first want to start by creaming together your softened butter and sugar. Then add in your Jif® Almond Butter, egg and vanilla.

Next you will want to add your flour, baking soda, salt and baking powder and combine.

If you’re using a stand mixer use your paddle attachment and mix together on medium until it has just combined.

Recently Jif® introduced new Almond Butter and Cashew Butter.  We’ve been trying to mix up meal time and with a little help from Jif® we’ve discovered many new flavors! […]
