Ingredients

1/2 cup almond butter

1/2 teaspoon almond extract 

1 cup all-purpose flour 

2 tablespoons granulated sugar 

1 teaspoon baking soda 

1/2 teaspoon fine salt 

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon 

1 cup buttermilk, at room temperature

1 large egg, at room temperature

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 

Vegetable oil cooking spray 

2 tablespoons cherry preserves 

Confectioners' sugar, for dusting 

Directions

  1. Stir the almond butter and almond extract together in a small bowl. Put a baking sheet and a piece of foil next to the stove.
  2. Heat a griddle or a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, buttermilk, egg and vanilla extract in a large bowl until smooth.
  3. Spray the griddle lightly with cooking spray. Working in batches, use a small scoop or ladle to drop 2 tablespoons of batter per pancake onto the griddle, being careful not to crowd the pan. Cook the pancakes until they are golden brown on each side, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Transfer each batch to the baking sheet and tent with foil while you cook the remaining batter.
  4. To serve, spread 1 tablespoon of the almond butter mixture on half of the pancakes. Spoon 1 teaspoon of the cherry preserves onto the remaining pancakes and flip them onto the pancakes with almond butter to make sandwiches. Dust the sandwiches with confectioners' sugar, and serve.
