Makes: 36 cookies

Ingredients

  • 3 cups blanched almond flour
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • ¾ cup dried cranberries
  • ¾ cup whole, blanched almonds, toasted
  • ¼ cup butter, melted
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp. almond extract
  • 3 Tbsp. cold water

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together almond flour, coconut palm sugar, salt, baking soda, dried cranberries, and almonds.
  • In a smaller bowl, whisk together butter, eggs, almond extract, and cold water. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir together until you have a thick dough.
  • Shape the dough into 2 logs (9" × 3") and place them on one of the baking sheets.
  • Bake for 25–30 minutes, until golden-brown around the edges. Cool for 1 hour on the baking sheet.
  • Once the logs are completely cool, move them to a cutting board and using a serrated knife, cut the logs, crosswise, into ½" slices. Arrange the cookies over the two baking sheets, cut-side-up.
  • Bake for 15–18 minutes until deeply golden. Cool on baking sheets 30 minutes.
