Star cookies on the wooden table

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, ghee, or palm shortening, softened
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, softened
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar or date sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 2 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour

Instructions

  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the butter, coconut oil, and brown sugar. Add the eggs, vanilla and almond extract, mix until incorporated.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine the baking soda, salt, almond flour, and coconut flour. With the mixer running on low, add the flour mixture to the creamed ingredients 1 cup at a time, beating well after each addition.
  3. Form the dough into a ball with your hands and place on a piece of plastic wrap. Form the dough into a disc and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  4. Preheat the oven to 350F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  5. Sprinkle a clean, flat surface with coconut flour and roll the dough out until it is 1/4 thick. You may have to rub the rolling pin with coconut flour to do this. Cut out the cookies using your choice of cutters. Using a spatula, transfer the cut cookies to the baking sheets.
  6. Gather the remaining scraps back up into a ball and roll out again. Repeat rolling and cutting out cookies until you use all the dough.
  7. Bake the cookies for 13-15 minutes, until lightly golden. These cookies need to bake longer than typical sugar cookies. They will stay soft and just get a little crispy, which is just what you want!
  8. Cool on a baking sheet for 2 minutes then transfer to a wire rack.
