This low carb dessert substitutes almond flour for traditional wheat flour--and produces light, delicate coffee flavored cookies.

  • Servings: 24 cookies

Ingredients:

2 cups Almond Flour
¼ cup Sugar
1 stick Softened Butter
¼ tsp Salt
¼ tsp Vanilla Extract or
Coffee Flavored Extract
1 Tbsp Instant Espresso

Directions:

Combine almond flour, butter, sugar and instant espresso; mix in a mixer for about 2 minutes. Add salt, vanilla or coffee extract and continue to mix for 30 seconds. Form about 24 cookies, and flatten each cookie dough using the back of a fork. Place cookie dough on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes. Rotate once during baking. Cool cookies on rack before serving or storing.
