Recipe by  

"This is a New Year's Eve tradition for my husband and I. It's an absolutely delicious new twist to the traditional peanut butter cookies, though they look almost exactly the same."

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Beat butter and almond butter in a large mixing bowl with an electric mixer on medium-high speed until creamy, about 30 seconds. Beat in 1/2 cup sugar, brown sugar, baking soda, cream of tartar, and salt until thoroughly combined. Beat egg, milk, and vanilla extract into moist ingredients.
  3. Beat whole wheat flour and as much of the all-purpose flour as the mixer can handle; stir remaining flour into dough.
  4. Combine 3 tablespoons sugar with ground almonds in a shallow bowl. Pinch off dough and roll into 1-inch balls; roll balls in almond-sugar mixture. Place cookies 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until edges are firm and tops are cracked, 8 to 10 minutes. Immediately press a chocolate almond kiss into middle of each cookie; let cool.

Tasty and full of almond flavor. I did use only all-purpose flour, as I didn't have any whole wheat flour on hand. Other than that, I followed the recipe. They turned out a little too flat (I prefer the puff of the traditional peanut butter version), and could have been baked a few minutes more (for 12 minutes total), in my opinion.
