Ingredients - COOKIE DOUGH RECIPE
2 tablespoons (30 ml) Vanilla Extract
¼ cup (48 g) Extra Virgin Oil, try Coconut Oil
⅛ teaspoon (2.625 g) Salt
⅓ cup (65 g) Coconut Palm Sugar, can use Brown Sugar
2 cups (240 g) Almond Flour
½ teaspoon (6.67 g) Baking Soda
Preheat the oven to 350°F/100°C.
In a medium bowl, mix together the egg, vanilla, coconut oil, and salt. Add the coconut palm sugar, almond flour, and baking soda.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Using your hands roll the dough into small balls the size of a cherry. Place the balls on the baking sheet one inch apart and indent with your thumb. The dough is sticky so do this gently.
Place roughly ½ teaspoon (1.67 g) of the jam filling into the middle of each indented cookie. The cookies will expand when baked.
Bake for 16-18 minutes.
