TOTAL TIME :
INGREDIENTS
  • Cookies
  • cups almond flour blanched
  • ¾ teaspoon sea salt
  • teaspoons cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ginger
  • 1 teaspoon freshly-grated nutmeg
  • 1 large range egg
  • ¼ cup grass-fed butter cut into small cubes (feel free to try subbing for coconut oil but I can't vouch for the results).
  • ¼ cup coconut oil solid
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon molasses
  • coconut sugar for sprinkling
  • Apple Butter
  • 4 small organic granny smith apples peeled and diced into ½ inch pieces
  • 3 tablespoons coconut sugar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
DIRECTIONS
Cookies
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. You might need 2 sheets.
  2. In a food processor, combine almond flour, sea salt, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg. Pulse briefly to incorporate.
  3. Add remaining ingredients and process until smooth (there will still be some tiny pieces of butter, which is fine).
  4. Turn dough out onto saran wrap and cover. Freeze for 1 hour.
  5. Remove from freezer and form 2 inch balls of dough. Place them with at least 2 inches of room between each on your baking sheets. Gently press each ball down to flatten to approximately ½ inch thickness. You can keep a bowl of lukewarm water nearby to wet your fingers and prevent stick.
  6. Sprinkle with coconut sugar and bake for 22-25 minutes, or until cookies are golden brown around the edges but still soft to touch.
  7. Remove and allow to cool for at least 15 minutes before eating.
Apple Butter
  1. In a small saucepot, combine all ingredients. Stir. Add 1/3 cup water.
  2. Heat to medium low and allow to simmer until apples have softened completely, approximately 30 minutes. Use a potato masher or whisk to mash mixture into a paste.
  3. Cool and use as a topping or filling for Spiced Shortbread cookies.
