Almond Butter Blossoms Cookies

Many mothers give almonds soaked in water to their children every morning. Two or three pieces of soaked almonds are enough, and you can also remove the outer shell if it causes allergic reactions, as the majority of the nutrients are not held in the shell. Obviously i dont forget to add almonds in our menu. Almonds have their important place in my pantry and my kids keep on munching them whenever they feel hungry. If almond butter is added in dangerously addictive cookies, how can one resist to them. When i picked almond butter from M&S, i couldnt stop myself to bake out some Almond butter blossom cookies. Easy to make, these cookies are simply fabulous to pack in anyone's snack box or to serve along with a cup of hot milk to please some hungry tummies for a breakfast or snacks. Since Almonds are rich in proteins, this blossom cookies are going to be a part of this month's blogging marathon as we are running with Protein rich foods as theme.
