  • 1/2 Cup Butter, softened to room temperature
  • 3/4 Cup Sugar
  • 2 Large eggs, at room temperature
  • 2 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 2 1/4 Cups Almond flour (225g)
  • 1/2 Cup Sifted coconut flour (56g)
  • 3/4 tsp Baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp Salt

For the frosting:

  • 3 Tbsp Butter, softened to room temperature
  • 2 Cups Powdered sugar
  • 1/4 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 2-3 Tbsp Unsweetened almond milk or regular milk


  • In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until well mixed. Add in the egg and vanilla and beat again.
  • Stir in all the remaining cookie ingredients until well mixed.
  • Pour onto a piece of plastic wrap and wrap into a thin disk. Refrigerate for 1 hours.
  • Heat your oven to 375 degrees and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • Roll the dough into heaping 1 Tbsp sized balls and press out about 1/2 inch thick.
  • Bake for 13-15 minutes until lightly golden brown and then cool completely on the pan.


  • Beat all the ingredients in a large bowl until well mixed. Add more milk if you want a thinner consistency.
  • Spread on the cookies and DEVOUR!



TO ROLL: chill the cookie dough overnight and roll between two layers of parchment paper. Once on the parchment paper lined pan, freeze on then pan for 30 mins. Then bake at 375 for 10-13 minutes until LIGHTLY golden brown and let cool on the pan.  These might not be sweet enough if you don't add frosting so I still recommend frosting cut out cookies or use a glaze!
