We've been talking cookies around my house lately. I'm on a mission to Paleo-ize some favorite christmas cookie recipes this year. Hopefully only those in the know will be able to tell the difference. Until I've perfected the new treats and posted them, you can make some of our old favorites. Enjoy!
Sugar Cookies/Cutout Cookies - These are made with coconut flour and are pretty allergy friendly. The are great to make with the kids and a pile of cookie cutters. If your dough is too soft, put it in the fridge for a bit before rolling and cutting.
Thumbprint Cookies - You can jazz up these cookies in numerous ways. Put your favorite jam in the thumb print in the middle, add some dark chocolate chips or even almond buttter...or all three!
Macaroons - Here are a couple different macaroon recipes. One is a raw macaroon and can be rolled in a topping like cocoa powder or toasted coconut. The second is a nut based macaroon that can be drizzled in dark chocolate. Both are yum!
Chocolate Chip Cookies - We cavegirls have a special love of chocolate chip cookies. We've tinkered with our recipe many times trying to find the perfect recipe...or the perfect recipe so far. Cavegirl Kate made a very tasty chocolate chip cookie that crisps up nicely. Cavegirl Stephanie reviewed Elana's Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe. And Cavegirl Angie added a bit more chocolate to cavegirl Kate's original recipe making Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies.
Coconut Flour Cinnamon Cookies - These cookies are nut free as well as being dairy and grain free. They are a bit like a chocolate chip cookie but with cinnamon instead of chocolate.
Snickerdoodle Cookie - This recipe is by the Urban Poser and is an authentic snickerdoodle without the grains!
Everyday Cookie - This is the healthiest cookie we've made so far. it uses fruit and veggie puree for moisture and contains enough nutrients to eat everyday...or more than one time each day!
