Ingredients

  • 2 cups superfine blanched almond flour
  • 1/2 cup Lakanto sugar-free maple syrup OR pure maple syrup for paleo
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp pure almond extract – optional but adds that signature sugar cookie flavor
  • 1/8 tsp fine sea salt – optional but if you add just a tiny pinch it helps to enhance the flavor and balance out the sweetness

Instructions

  1. MAKE THE DOUGH: In a large mixing bowl, add the flour, sweetener, vanilla, almond extract and salt. Mix until a dough starts to form. Knead dough with your hands and form into a large ball.
  2. CHILL: Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and freeze for 15 minutes. Chilling the dough is essential since freshly made cookie dough is too warm to work with and will cause your cookies to spread.
  3. PREP THE BAKING SHEET: Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 250F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper,
  4. ROLL OUT DOUGH: Remove dough from fridge and roll into 1/4″ thickness in between two large pieces of parchment paper.
  5. CUT INTO SHAPES: Use cookie cutters to cut out into shapes – carefully lift and place cookies onto lined baking sheet. Use a silicon spatula as needed. Re-roll scraps and repeat.
