Festive Lemon & Vanilla Cookies
Delicious festive cookies perfect for the holidays and a great recipe to make with kids.
2 cups (300g)
Blanched Almond Flour
1/4 cup (85g)
Coconut oil, melted
*With no added sugar
Zest of 1 lemon
Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl and mix with a spoon until the wet ingredients are incorporated into the dry.
Next, use your hands to work the mixture into two “dough” balls.
Wrap each in cling film and place in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. This will make it easier to work with.
Preheat the oven to 160°C Fan, 180°C electric, 350°F or gas mark 4. Remove the two balls and place them on two separate sheets of parchment paper and cover them each with a second sheet of parchment.
Using your hands, press out the “dough” balls then roll with a rolling pin until you end up with two circles roughly the size of an adult’s dinner plate.
Next, make the shapes you want using your cookie cutters. I usually use a mixture of sizes as it gives a nice effect.
Place the shapes on parchment-lined baking trays and bake in the oven for 6-8 minutes. This will depend on your oven. 6 minutes is all that mine need.
Decorate with some extra lemon zest and desiccated coconut.
