How do you make almond butter cookies?

Mix well, and drop tablespoons of the batter onto your baking sheet. Then using a fork, gently press down on each cookie to make a crisscross pattern, and bake. If your fork is sticking to the cookies, wet the fork slightly after pressing every few cookies or so.
