Dipping our toe into the fall and holiday flavors, these almond crinkle cookies are the perfect afternoon or after-dinner treat! Made with almond flour and dark molasses, the flavor is out of this world! The chewy texture is enhanced by none other than a big scoop of JOI Almond base!
Molasses cookies are an excellent holiday cookie to have on hand. From September through December the warming spices are totally in season and are sure to brighten up any afternoon cup of coffee or dessert table. By using JOI Almond base in these cookies they stay incredibly moist and fluffy!
Dark molasses is a sweetener that gives incredible deep flavor and an amazing brown color. To achieve our “crinkle” look we sprinkle the outside with a little coconut sugar and roll it in arrowroot starch. It has no flavor but adds to the look of the crinkle (although is totally optional!).
