Treat yourself! Recipe included
Valentines isn't a big deal in our house and I am lucky enough to have a few valentines if you count my partner and three kiddos each and every day. But none of them would know what to give me other than maybe flowers which aren't my thing and can be sprayed with toxic chemicals.
I don't treat myself too often so, I decided today would be the perfect day to love myself a little. I made these Grain-free Butter Cookies with Homemade Jam. Truth be told, you don't need the jam. They are super yummy and crispy on their own but I wanted a little something extra today.
Happy Valentine's Day!
Grain-free Butter Cookie
3 1/2 cups almond flour
1/2 teaspoon of good quality salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup cold butter
3/4 cup pure maple syrup or 1/2 cup of honey
1/4 cup olive oil
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extra (check the ingredients on your vanilla. Sometimes they put other ingredients like sugar or vanilla "flavor" which you don't want)
In a medium sized bowl, combine the dry ingredients then cut in the butter with a fork until. Add all of the wet ingredients and, using your fork or your hands (this is my preference), mix together until completely combined. Cover in plastic wrap and place in the fridge for about 30-45 minutes. This makes it much easier to roll out and work with. Preheat your oven at this time to 350 degrees.
