Ingredients

Cookie Ingredients

  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 3 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 tablespoons granulated monk fruit sweetener can sub coconut sugar for non-keto version
  • ¼ cup butter or melted coconut oil
  • 1 egg

Cranberry Preserve Filling Ingredients

  • 1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries
  • ½ cup water
  • 4 tbsp monk fruit sweetener can sub coconut sugar for non-keto version

Extra Ingredients

  • Coconut flour for dusting
  • ¼ cup powdered monk fruit sweetener we ordered Powdered Lakanto Sweetener from Amazon. If you can’t find this, just omit or for a non paleo/non keto option--use regular powdered sugar

Instructions

For the Cookies

  • Preheat your oven to 350℉.
  • Whisk together the almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, and monk fruit.
  • With a rubber spatula, mix in the butter or coconut oil, and egg.
  • Form a ball of dough, wrap in plastic wrap and set in fridge for at least one hour.
  • Dust a piece of parchment paper heavily with coconut flour and place the dough in the center.
  • Dust more coconut flour on top of the dough and place another piece of parchment over that.
  • Using the top parchment paper as a barrier between the rolling pin and the dough, start rolling out dough to a sheet until it is about ¼” thick. You may need to continue adding coconut flour while rolling so the dough doesn’t get too sticky and stick to the paper.
  • Punch out circles with either a cookie cutter or a thin rim of a drinking glass. Transfer each circle to a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  • Punch smaller circles (at least half the size of the large circles you already made) in the centers of HALF the larger circles.
  • Bake the cookies for 8-10 minutes. They will be lightly golden around the edges when they are finished.
  • While cooling, make the filling.

For the Cranberry Preserve

  • In a small saucepan, combine all cranberry preserve ingredients and place over medium heat.
  • Cover for three minutes. Take the lid off and crush cranberries with the back of a fork.
  • Let cook for another two minutes with lid off, this will thicken.
  • Turn heat off and let the filling cool completely.

Assemble

  • Dust the circles with the center cut out with powdered monk fruit.
  • Spread a tbsp of the cranberry filling on the full circles and close with the powdered cookies.
  • Serve right away or store in an airtight container. Enjoy!
