Spritz (not really Paleo, I know!)

Alright! Recipe #2 in this last minute Christmas countdown. I never grew up with Christmas spritz cookies, but my husband did. My in laws are here this year and even my MIL approves. Hurrah!

You’ll need a cookie press (or as my son calls it, a cookie gun!) for this recipe. I highly recommend this one. It has served me well for years now.

Spritz (not totally paleo, I know!)

Ingredients

  • 3 cups almond flour
  • ½ cup arrowroot flour
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 egg plus 1 additional egg yolk, at room temperature
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • ½ cup coconut sugar (If you prefer a sweeter cookie, increase to ⅔ cup)
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • ½ cup butter (1 stick) softened

Instructions

  1. Using stand mixer with whisk attachment, eggs with coconut sugar until it appears dissolved nicely and a little fluffy (about 3 minutes on 4). Gently whisk in butter. Add almond & vanilla extract.
  2. While things are mixing, in another bowl blend together flours, baking soda and salt.
  3. Once the wet ingredients are creamy and delicious smelling, slowly mix in the flour mixture. Dough should be thick, but have a fluffy/springiness to it. Use your handy dandy cookie gun to make awesome shapes!
  4. Bake at 375 degrees for 7-9 mins.
