    Sciabica's Orange Olive Oil Almonds


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Spray two baking sheets with cooking spray. In a large bowl whisk together the flours, salt and baking soda. In another large bowl beat together the olive oil, almond butter and sugars until fluffy. Add the vanilla and egg and beat until well combined. Gradually stir in the flour mixture, blending well.

  2. Shape the dough into 3/4 inch balls, and place on the baking sheets. Place an almond in center of each cookie and press down lightly. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack.

  3. (OPTIONAL) decorate with Cream Cheese Frosting. Combine 1 teaspoon Lemon Juice, 2 ounces Low-Fat Cream Cheese, 2 tablespoons Orange Juice Concentrate (thawed), 1 cup Powdered Sugar. Blend until smooth.
