Paleo Christmas Cookies
Makes: 24 cookies
Almond flour (2 1/2 cups) — or make your own by grinding soaked and dehydrated almonds
Sea salt (1/4 tsp)
Almonds, toasted and chopped — previously soaked and dehydrated (1 cup)
Honey (5 TBS)
Butter or ghee, unsalted, organic, from grass-fed cows if possible, or coconut oil, melted (1/2 cup)
Vanilla extract, organic or homemade vanilla extract (1 TBS)
Stainless steel cookie sheet
If using an aluminum cookie sheet, use parchment paper or a Silpat baking mat
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2. In a large bowl, combine the almond flour, sea salt, and toasted, chopped almonds.
3. In a smaller bowl, mix together the honey, melted butter (or ghee or coconut oil) and vanilla.
4. Combine the wet ingredients with the dry.
5. Tear off a large piece of parchment paper. Set it on the counter and place the cookie dough in the center. Form the dough into a large log about 2 1/2 inches in diameter.
6. Wrap the log with the parchment paper and place in the freezer for one hour, or until firm.
7. Remove from the freezer and unwrap. Cut into 1/8 inch thick slices.
8. Line a cookie sheet with another sheet of parchment paper or use a Silpat. Place the cookie slices on the cookie sheet. Do not overcrowd.
9. Bake for 7 to 10 minutes in the oven or until lightly golden.
10. Cool before enjoying. Store cookies in an airtight container.
