Almond Butter and Concord Grape Sandwich Cookies
Serves: 18
 
Ingredients
  • 1 cup smooth almond butter
  • ½ cup organic cane sugar, plus additional for sprinkling cookies, if desired
  • ½ cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ⅔ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup water
  • ½ cup concord grape spread*
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Line 2 rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, beat together almond butter, sugars, and vanilla extract with a mixer at medium speed until combined, approximately 1 minute.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add to almond butter mixture, beating until a crumbly dough forms. Gradually add water, beating until just combined.
  4. Using a levered 1½-teaspoon scoop, shape dough into 18 (1-inch) balls. Place dough balls 3 inches apart on prepared baking sheets.
  5. Bake cookies until light golden brown, 8 to 9 minutes. Immediately sprinkle additional cane sugar over 9 cookies. Let cookies cool on pan for 2 minutes. Transfer cookies to a wire rack, and let cool completely.
  6. Spread 1 teaspoon grape spread on flat side of cookies without sugar topping. Cover with sugared cookies, flat side down, pressing together gently. Serve immediately.
Notes
MAKE-AHEAD TIP: Cookies without jam filling can be stored at room temperature in an airtight container up to 3 days. Fill with grape spread just before serving.)
