  • 1/2 cup unsalted grass-fed butter , softened to room temperature (can use ghee for paleo)
  • 1.5 tablespoon fresh lemon juice (about 1/2 lemon)
  • 1.5 teaspoons lemon zest (about 1/2 lemon)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup powdered monk fruit sweetener OR powdered / confectioners' sweetener of choice
  • 1 cup almond flour , + 2 tablespoons (measured correctly with the spoon and level method)



  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

  2. In a large mixing bowl using an electric mixer, cream the butter until light and fluffy. Add the lemon juice and lemon zest and continue mixing until combined.

  3. Add vanilla, then powdered monk fruit sweetener and blanched almond flour and mix until the dough comes together.

  4. Roll cookie dough into 9 balls, approximately 1.5 tablespoons of dough each or use a small cookie scoop. If the dough seems too wet, add up to 1 tablespoon of almond flour.

  5. Bake in a preheated oven at 350 F degrees for approximately 8-10 minutes or until golden on the edges. Carefully transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.


  1. While the cookies are baking, whisk together the powdered sweetener and milk until smooth. Add more milk or sweetener until desired consistency is reached. Drizzle over cooled cookies and enjoy immediately or place in the refrigerator until set.
