Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

A pareve dessert good enough to eat all year.

I love it when people taste my pareve desserts and say, “Wow — this is pareve?!”

It’s the same rule with Passover dishes and desserts. Which is why I am on a never-ending search for the perfect Passover desserts that are good enough to eat all year and just happen to also be Passover-friendly.

In one of my searches I came across this recipe for flourless peanut butter cookies which I realized could easily be made Passover-friendly just by swapping out the peanut butter for almond butter. I adjusted a few ingredients and the result is a super tasty, chewy cookie that is good enough to enjoy all year. Your guests are sure to ask incredulously, “Are you sure these are kosher for Passover?” Truly the ultimate compliment.

    LOVED this recipe. Will use it all year round. Cute the chips to 1/2 cup the second time I made it and was equally happy.
