About this recipe

These almond butter cookies are not only fluffy and crunchy but so simple to make. Use good-quality butter and roasted almonds for the ultimate buttery biscuit!

I make these crunchy almond cookies using ingredients mainly found in household pantries and minimal dishes. These melt-in-the-mouth little biscuits are made using  Aunty Nadia’s recipe and she’s super excited to share it with us. You can whip them up easily and quickly. It only takes 20 minutes of prep and into the oven, they go!

almond butter cookies


  • 250 grams unsalted butter softened
  • ½ cup of sugar
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 ½ cups plain flour sifted
  • ½ tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 cup roasted almonds (ground medium)

Notes from Rouba

  • Keep your butter soft, soft, soft – why butter should be soft.
  • The secret to the crunch is to bake these on very low and slow.
  • If you’re roasting your own almonds, cool them completely before adding them to the mixture.
  • Food brands may vary. You may need to add 1 -2 tablespoons of flour to the dough mixture.


Step 1.

Preheat the oven to 160° degrees and line 2 baking trays with baking paper. Using an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugar until creamy and fluffy.

Step 2.

Add egg, vanilla, and a pinch of salt and continue to beat until combined.

Step 3.

Gradually fold in the flour, baking powder, and crushed almonds to form a dough. Lightly flour your hands and workbench. Divide the mixture into 2 and roll out 25 cm logs in lengths with approximately 1 cm thickness. Cut into crescent shapes and place onto prepared trays. It’s best not to cut the crescent shapes too thick as they will lose their shape whilst baking. Repeat with the remaining dough.

Step 4.

Bake for approximately 30 minutes or until crisp but still light in colour. Optional – Once cool, dust with icing sugar. I prefer mine without.

This post is meant to be a recipe, but I can’t ignore what’s been happening 👉🏽👉🏽The last seven months have been incredibly challenging, watching thousands of innocent Palestinians being slaughtered in the name of self-defence 💔 It’s an excuse to ethnically cleanse the indigenous people of the land. But what I’ve seen in the last 24 hours has absolutely shattered me 😞

Families were told to move for their safety, only to be burnt alive. I forced myself to watch videos of beheaded babies—images that will never leave my mind. The destruction, the horrific scenes, and the screams are etched in our hearts and minds💔

And yet, our government responds with a mere, “It’s concerning.” Our tax money has contributed to the slaughter of these innocent people; our tax money has contributed to funding this genocide. 

I feel heartbroken and helpless. How can the world just watch? How can anyone say, “I’m staying out of this”?

I’m not ok. Are you?
With so many new followers here, today feels like the right time to reintroduce myself, as it also marks the 76th anniversary of the Nakba—a day of remembrance for the Palestinian people, including my family🇵🇸🌟 

I’m Rouba, 40+7 years young, and I’ve been happily married for 28 years🙏🏽 Those who follow my stories know my husband is quite the character, always keeping things lively 😅 We have two wonderful sons, and my mother-in-law is truly amazing—she often features in my stories ❤️

I’m a big foodie, with a special love for hummus fatteh, ofcourse the  Lebanese 🇱🇧 version 😉 it’s my absolute favourite! I believe Middle Eastern food is the yummiest in the world. 🙌🏼 And yes, I’m proudly pro-Palestine, married to a Palestinian. 

Seventy-five years ago, my husband’s grandfather and his family were evicted from their home. This history is a significant part of our lives 💔

Thanks for joining me here, where we celebrate rich flavours, vibrant stories, and the resilience of a remarkable culture.

Welcome to my journey! FREE PALESTINE 🇵🇸

I Say NO to international women’s day - I have learned so much in the past few months, and as I sit here reflecting, I realize that International Women’s Day has never been as inclusive as I once believed. How was I convinced otherwise? Where is the support for all women? Today, I see the humiliation of Palestinian women, their trauma, their screams for lost loved ones, their search for their babies under rubble, and their lack of basic necessities like food, water and  sanitary products. 

I can no longer participate in a day that acknowledges and hears only certain women while ignoring others. International Women’s Day was supposed to be for all women – this is what I was led to believe. Yet, the reality is starkly different. 

Today, I choose to say no to International Women’s Day unless it truly includes and represents all women.
