It has now been a few weeks since Dan and I went apple picking. Every year I get a little overzealous and pick way more apples than we could ever possibly need. But I hate to let anything go to waste so I try my best to eat/use as many as possible.

Almond Butter Blossoms

Please don’t ask me to choose between peanut butter cookies and almond butter cookies. It’s nearly impossible for me to decide which I like better.
