Paleo Sugar Cookies

Christmas without sugar cookies (the kind you roll and cutout and then decorate with icing) would be weird…I know that sounds dramatic, but it is the truth. With that in mind I decided to make a sugar cookie recipe for the holiday season.

Paleo Sugar Cookies

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup vegan butter (chilled)

  • two tablespoons maple syrup

  • two tablespoons maple sugar (if you do not have maple sugar you can use maple syrup)

  • one teaspoon vanilla extract

  • two egg yolks

  • two cups almond flour

  • pinch of salt

Divide chilled butter into four tablespoons (or into three tablespoons and one tablespoon). Cut the three tablespoons into pieces and put into a large bowl. Melt the other tablespoon of butter and pour into the bowl.

Transfer dough to a piece of parchment paper and flatten into a disk. Wrap in plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for an hour to one day.

Preheat oven to 325° F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Once chilled all the way through, roll dough between two pieces of parchment paper until it is 1/4 inch thick. Cut into shapes and place onto baking sheet (optional: chill the cutout pieces again in the fridge to minimize spreading). Bake for 10 minutes (or until the edges are golden brown), rotating the pan halfway through.

Decorate however you like. I used maple butter, which you can buy at Whole Foods, pistachios, chopped peppermint chocolate, and some freeze dried raspberries (for color).
