Recipe and image courtesy of Adeline Waugh

Ingredients:

1/4 cup softened grass fed butter
1/3 cup monk fruit sweetener
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup almond flour
1/3 cup arrowroot flour
Dairy-Free Peppermint Cream Cheese Frosting (see below)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a medium sized mixing bowl, combine the butter and the monk fruit sweetener until fully blended. Add vanilla, almond flour, and arrowroot flour and mix together until a dough forms. You can do this by hand or use a stand mixer.

Feel free to create shapes using cookie cutters (chill the dough for at least 30 minutes in the refrigerator if you do this) or just make regular round cookies.

Bake on a parchment lined baking sheet for 11-13 minutes.
