To change the flavor of the cookies, experiment with adding different flavor extracts, or additions such as chopped nuts or spices such as cinnamon.

1 tablespoon or 8 grams arrowroot starch

1/4 cup or 28 grams coconut flour

1 cup or 112 grams almond flour

1 stick or 114 grams butter, very cold and cut into cubes

1 large or 50 grams raw egg



1. Add all the dry ingredients to a food processor bowl. Pulse several times to combine.

2. Add the cubed butter and raw egg to the dry mixture. Run the processor until all the ingredients are combined and there are no traces of the egg or dry ingredients remaining. The mixture should look like large pieces of wet sand that hold together easily with pinched between your fingers.

3. Remove the mixture from the bowl onto a piece of plastic wrap. Wrap the dough tightly in the plastic pressing it together into a disk shape. Refrigerate the dough for about 30 minutes before rolling.

4. Roll the dough between two pieces of plastic wrap to prevent sticking. Cut into cookie shapes.

5. Bake the cookies in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 10-12 minutes. They should be lightly browned on the edges. Allow the cookies to cool before storing in an airtight storage container.
