Perfect for every single vacation! I figured I’d share this dish once again for Valentine’s Day so you might be motivated to make some joyful cookies for your household!
Maturing we made cookies for nearly every vacation, so I wished to make this an enjoyable activity to take pleasure in with my child.

These cookies are 100% grain-free, gluten-free, and have the most scrumptious buttery, sweet taste. They likewise are actually simple to make!
ACTIVE INGREDIENTS YOU’LL REQUIREMENT
- Almond flour
- Coconut flour
- Sodium bicarbonate
- Grass-fed butter
- Coconut oil
- Sugar + baking Stevia
- Vanilla extract
When baking these sugar cookies, I like to utilize a mix of routine sugar plus baking Stevia since the routine sugar assists to accomplish that best browning and increasing that just sugar can offer when baking. Then I like to include the baking Stevia since it’s a terrific method to lighten these cookies up while still keeping that exact same terrific “sugar cookie” taste! If you do not have any baking Stevia, just change with more sugar.
HOW TO MAKE Grain Free Sugar Cookies
To make these, you’ll wish to utilize a stand mixer or hand mixer, and the initial step is creaming together the butter, sugars, coconut oil, egg, and vanilla. Then you’ll gradually include your flours and blend till all integrated. Kind the dough into a ball, cover it with cling wrap, and location the dough in the refrigerator for a minimum of an hour. You might likewise simply make the dough the night prior and leave it there overnight. I in fact discover that cooling the dough overnight works best since the cookies appear to hold their shape a bit much better and the dough is simpler to deal with, however in any case you will still get scrumptious cookies!
Once the dough has actually cooled, it’s time to roll it out and eliminate your cookies! Roll the dough out on parchment paper till it has to do with 1/4 of an inch thick. Utilize a cookie cutter and cut the dough into preferred shapes (or a selection of various shapes) and position the cookies on a flat pan. Then bake in the oven for about 10 to 13 minutes till they are good and golden. Make certain to let them cool entirely prior to embellishing!
HOW TO DECORATE SUGAR COOKIES
Considering That I had some remaining white chocolate chips from my strawberry banana donuts, I chose to simply melt the chocolate, including a little bit of pink food coloring, and dip these cookies into the chocolate. To melt the chocolate chips, simply include them in a microwavable-safe bowl together with a tablespoon of coconut oil and gradually microwave in 15 to 30 2nd periods (stirring each time) till the chocolate is melted and you have that best consistency. The included coconut oil actually makes it simpler to dip the cookies as it weakens the chocolate and makes it good and shiny! Then after you dip the cookies, right away position them on a cake rack and embellish with sprays prior to the chocolate dries.
( Much Healthier) Cream Cheese Icing
Another alternative would be a scrumptious (much healthier) cream cheese icing! To make this, all you require has to do with a 1/2 cup of cream cheese, 1/4 cup of plain Greek yogurt, a couple of tablespoons of honey (or maple syrup), and about a teaspoon of vanilla. Then simply whip whatever together with a mixer till it’s all integrated and velvety. You might likewise include 2 or 3 drops of pink food coloring in the icing too. Then simply frost your cookies and include enjoyable sprays! If you do not wish to make your own icing, store-bought works terrific too!
