A quick trip to the grocery store and this recipe will have you eating sugar cookies that will have zip zero zilch guilt... and I mean nada.
So, before we get started - have an open mind and trust me. They are amazing.
Follow these directions carefully and if you do, you will have perfectly soft and moist sugar cookies ready to frost and enjoy :)
3c of almond flour
3tsp of melted ghee or butter
1egg plus 1 egg white
1/2tsp baking soda
1/4tsp cinnamon (optional)
Put all ingredients together in a ninja or food processor and process until mixed. Pull the dough out, ball it and refrigerate until completely cold. Once cool, dust the ball with excess almond flour and roll it out on wax paper. Cut with cookie cutters or shape into small round cookies.
Place in a pre-heated 350 degree oven for 10 minutes.
Immediately remove from pan and let cool on a wire rack or a different surface for at least 10 minutes. If you handle them sooner than this, or try to frost them they will crumble. The "setting" time is needed.
Once cooled, continue with frosting using your favorite recipe or mine below:
1 stick of melted butter
1 container of melted cream cheese
1/4c of honey
whip until creamy and let set until it thickens enough to frost.
These cookies are so healthy that I would feed them to my kids for breakfast!
