Low Carb Almond Butter Cookies

I wanted some peanut butter cookies, but I can't due to my son has an allergy to peanuts, so I made these instead.  Helped with my sweet tooth craving:)

Almond Butter Cookies
1 cup almond butter(I used trader joe's almond butter with roasted flaxseed, crunchy and salty)
1/8-1/4 cup almond flour, depends on oil of almond butter
1/2 cup xylitol
1/2 cup brown sugar twin
1 lg egg
1 tsp baking soda
dash of salt
1/2 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Line cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Mix all ingredients in bowl with electric mixer.  Form into 22 balls(I used a small cookie dough scoop and then formed balls).  Put on cookie sheet leaving about a 2 inch space between balls.  Use a flork and make crisscross pattern on top.  Bake for 8-10 minutes.  Remove from oven and let pan sit for a few minutes before removing.
