I made these cookies based on this recipe over the weekend and they were yummy! John told me to make them again – and soon 😀 Gluten free and grain free!
Very few ingredients, too. Bonus!
This recipe makes 10 cookies.
- 1 cup of almond flour/meal
- 1/2 cup of sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
- 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
- pinch of salt
- 1 egg white (1 tablespoon liquid egg whites)
- 10 slivered almond slices (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 F. In a bowl, combine all of the ingredients except the sliced almonds.
Use a spatula and just keep mixing and mixing thoroughly to get a crumbly dough that will hold it’s shape when you press it together. It doesn’t seem like much liquid, but trust me, it is.
It doesn’t look like it will stick, but try it:
Now divide the dough into 10 equal portions. I weighed the bowl before and after adding all the ingredients and I came up with a portion of 24 grams per cookie. So, that is how I portioned it out. Press each portion of dough into a ball and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet.
Now press down on each ball to flatten:
Press an almond sliver into each cookie. This is just fancy and you don’t need it 😀
Bake for 15 to 17 minutes until gloden brown on the bottom.
These are a nice size little cookies and so tasty!
