Although jelly beans are usually my favorite Spring treat, these chocolate Easter cookies with almond butter filling are now a close second!
Step 1: Make Chocolate Cookies
Make chocolate cookies using LilaLoa’s Chocolate Cookie recipe.
Roll out the dough a little thinner than usual since the cookies will be multi-layer, 1/8" thick is good.
Use an egg or bunny cookie cutter to cut your cookie shapes.
Step 2: Make Chocolate Royal Icing
Make icing using Sweet Sugarbelle’s Chocolate Royal Icing.
Add brown and black food coloring to get a few different shades of brown to work with and decorate the top layer of your cookies.
Step 3: Make Almond Butter Filling
Almond Butter Filling
3 tablespoons butter
1 cup almond butter
2/3 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1. Beat together the butter and almond butter until combined and smooth.
2. Sift the powdered sugar into the bowl and beat again for a couple of minutes.
3. Mix in vanilla extract.
