  • Need almond flour cookie/biscuit recipe

    Hey everyone, I am making balsamic strawberries with whipped mascarpone for a gathering this weekend. I would like to garnish with a thin biscuit/cookie. Does anyone have a good recipe for something that would go well?

      Thanks Marisa! Ideally something like a thin wafer is my goal, so it will stay upright in a dollop of the whipped mascarpone.

        Perhaps something like this, with a touch of honey and cinnamon in the mix?

          I don't know why it didn't occur to me to slightly sweeten a cracker recipe, thanks so much! I think something like that will be just what I am looking for.

            Any recipes without honey in them? I'm a T1 diabetic and honey hugely spikes my blood sugars. I suppose it wouldn't be possible to get a chewy texture without some kind of syrup.

              Egg yolks and stevia.

              Works like a charm! I am not against the use of stevia though, so it depends on if you are okay with using it.

                  here is a recipe for pie crust that i've used to make exactly what you're looking for.

                  1/2 cup of sifted coconut flour
                  1/2 cup of almond flour
                  2 eggs
                  1.5 teaspoons of honey (or in your case Truvia)
                  1/2 tsp of almond flavoring
                  1/4 cup butter, melted
                  1/4 tsp salt
                  2-3 tbsp of crushed nuts (macadamia are my favorite)

                  beat eggs, add almond flavoring, melted butter, salt.
                  add flours, whisk until lump free. you may need to use a mixing spatula as it will become thick quick.

                  roll out to desired thickness. i roll out on/between two sheets of waxed paper and transfer to parchment paper and then put parchment paper on cookie sheet. it will break up easily, so the parchment paper serves double duty.

                  i spread a little Plugra butter on the pastry and then top with crushed macadamia nuts (optional, of course) and Penzey's Cake Spice. if you want to make wafers out of it, you might try scoring with a knife or pizza cutter (but don't cut all the way through).

                  Bake 10-12 minutes in a 400 degree oven. Edges will cook faster, so keep an eye on it. I usually put a strip of aluminum foil around the edges after about 7 minutes.

                  Inspired from a recipe in Bruce Fife's "Cooking with Coconut Flour"

                      Marisa - Made these last night, and they were awesome! I love really simple recipes like this. We had them with some homemade artichoke pesto last night. I am going to make a rosemary & olive oil batch today, as well as a slightly sweetened version as a tester for this weekend. Thanks!

                              I made a batch of these over the weekend and LOVE them:

                              http://www.elanaspantry.com/pecan-shortbread-cookies/

                              I didn't melt the butter, just made sure it was nice and soft. Substituted erythritol and stevia for the agave nectar, and, instead of freezing and slicing, formed the dough into small balls then flattened them with the bottom of a glass.

                              You could, of course, skip the nuts for a plain shortbread cookie. I made a second batch yesterday using hazelnut flour and a bit of xylitol along with the erythritol and stevia, and substituting hartshorn for the baking soda (why? because I wanted these to have the texture of Swedish Dreams, and you can only get that with hartshorn, an ancient leavening agent). (No pecans.) These are also delicious, more wafer-like than the almond version . . . but the xylitol was a mistake. I think it tends to melt during baking, so the wafers are just the tiniest bit damp, which means they don't have the delicious dry crispness I was trying for. Will try again, without xylitol.
