The perfect time to share our easy-to-make almond flour cookies which are fun to make, gluten-free, and most importantly, freakin’ delicious!
-300 gram ground almonds
-140 gram powdered sugar
-1,5 tsp baking powder (gluten-free)
-zest of 1 lemon
-pinch of salt
-jam to decorate (I used raspberry and apricot)
-blanched and roasted almonds to decorate
Preheat oven at 180 C . Put ground almonds in a large mixing bowl and sift powdered sugar and baking powder on top. Add the egg, 2 tablespoons of lemon zest, a pinch of salt and stir untill a stiff dough. Role, with greased hands, balls of dough the size of a walnut.
Decorate with blanched or roasted almonds or make a press down with your thumb to make a small well in the center of the cookie. Fill with 1/2 teaspoon of jam. Put the balls on a baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes or until slightly firm. Allow to cool and store them in a airtight container.
