Sunday calling – Almond butter chocolate chip cookies

Almond butter chocolate chip cookies

I’ve been fancying that new cookie Prêt A Manger has been doing but for some reason you can’t get it anywhere these days. My local one is always out and the other day when I passed by a staff person said they’re revising the recipe.

So I’ve been scouring the web for something I can make that will temporarily fill the void of the perfect cookie lost in reinvention.

I am in no disillusion that what I’ve created today is a near enough replacement, but it is yummy still and did the job. Also, I ended up baking a load though I just wanted ONE cookie. Who am I kidding, I had 2. Might go for another one after dinner.

For anyone wanting to bake some delicious cookies. They really don’t take long to make.
