Paleo sugar cookies are a great treat that I love to give to my family without the guilt of refined sugar, artificial dyes or preservatives found in store-bought sugar cookies or cookie mixes.
I love this recipe because the cookies are thin and delicate with the perfect level of sweetness. It took me a while to get these cookies just right. I usually work with almond butter in my cookie recipes (like my Grain-Free Chocolate Peppermint Cookies), but the blanched almond flour gave these cookies a more fine texture.
Now rather than use a stand mixer or food processor, I LOVE to use my Vitamix for mixing dough. It works so well for batters and dough. In fact, sometimes I’ll even make my almond flour more fine by pulsing it a few times in the Vitamix. So it’s a great all-in-one kitchen tool.
How To Make Paleo Sugar Cookies
- Add all ingredients to a Vitamix blender. Mix well on setting 3 until mixture forms a ball.
- Place dough ball in parchment paper and let sit in the refrigerator for about 45 minutes. This allows the dough to firm up so it's easier to work with.
Pre-heat oven to 350°F/180°C.
- Sprinkle table top or large cutting board with 1-2 tbsp (or more as needed) tapioca flour.
- Remove dough from refrigerator and place on dusted cutting board. Dust rolling pin and start rolling out dough until it's very thin - about 1/8 inch thick (or about the thickness of 2 pennies stacked together).
- Use cookie cutters to cut out shapes. Keep dusting surface and rolling pin as needed.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place cookies on top - about 2 inches apart.
- Bake for 6-8 minutes - or until the edges of the cookie are browned and center is firm.
- Let cool on a wire rack for at least 10 minutes. Use your favorite frosting to decorate as desired.
Tip: These cookies are usually eaten right away in my house. But if you store more than 1-2 days, keep them in the freezer and take out when you need it. This helps to keep the firmness of the cookie intact.
