  • 2 cups superfine almond flour
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup OR Lakanto sugar-free maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp almond extract , optional but adds that signature sugar cookie flavor
  • 1/8 tsp fine sea salt
  • 1/3 - 1/2 cup homemade strawberry chia seed jam OR favorite sugar-free jam/preserves
  • Powdered coconut sugar or powdered sweetener , sifted


  1. In a large bowl, add the flour, sweetener, vanilla, optional almond extract & salt & mix until dough starts to form. Knead dough with your hands and form into a large ball.
  2. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap & freeze for 15 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 250F.
  4. Remove dough from fridge & roll into 1/4” thickness in between two large pieces of parchment paper.
  5. Use Linzer cookie cutters & cut into equal outer rounds & inner shapes - re-rolling scraps as needed. Use both hands to lift the edges of the parchment paper with the cut-out cookies & transfer onto the baking sheet.
  6. Bake in preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, rotating halfway through, until cookies are just slightly golden on bottom. Allow to cool for 15 minutes then lift the parchment paper to transfer cookies to wire rack to cool completely.
