Thumbprint Cookies (Grain Free)

Grain-Free Thumbprint Cookies at The Gluten-Free HomemakerThe following is a guest post by my friend, Danielle McKinney (see more information about her below). I’ve always loved thumbprint cookies, and now I’m glad to have a grain free version!

These grain-free thumbprint cookies have a wonderful almond taste without being too dense or crumbly. Topped with your favorite jelly or jam, they’re delicious! Aside from the taste, I also love that they are very quick to make and can be dairy-free if you want.

Thumbprint Cookies (Grain Free)
Author: 
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 21 cookies
 
Ingredients
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • ⅓ cup coconut flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 Tablespoons butter, coconut oil, or grape seed oil
  • 2 Tablespoons honey
  • 1½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 whole eggs
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 325° F.
  2. Combine all dry ingredients, making sure there are no lumps.
  3. Add in liquid ingredients and stir until dough forms a sticky ball. Allow the dough to rest for a minute while you line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  4. Roll 1 Tablespoon dough into a ball, dipping your hands in water if the dough is too sticky. Place balls on cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.
  5. Make a small indent in the top of each cookie ( I use a small measuring spoon, dipping in water to prevent sticking.)
  6. Bake 9 -10 minutes at 325°F or until cookie is mostly firm to the touch. They will stay about the same color and will continue to firm after removing from the oven, so be careful not to over bake.
  7. Spoon your favorite jam or jelly into the cookies while still warm and enjoy!

Coconut Clove Balls (Dairy Free)

Coconut_Clove_Balls_Dairy_Free_3.jpg

For years I made these coconut clove balls at Christmas time. My sister-in-law in particular loved them and would ask me to make them. I don’t eat those balls now for two reasons. First, they contain milk, and consuming even small amounts of dairy makes me itch.  Second, they contain lots of sugar, and while […]
