Would this dough be able to be cut into shapes with a cookie cutter and then baked?
Hi, Sally! We didn’t test it that way, but I don’t see why it wouldn’t work. If you try it, let us know how it turns out!
I’d like to make these, but I’m wondering if they are difficult to remove from the pan. I will to use a pie plate.
Hi, Julie! If you try this recipe in a pie plate, I would line the plate with parchment or aluminum foil so you can easily lift the cookies out of the pan.
Could not find almond flour at the small local market, but used coconut flour instead and the results were fabulous. Made multiple batches for Christmas trays, to rave reviews. Yum!
Just made these – DELICIOUS! I’ve dipped one end in chocolate and sprinkled the chocolate with coconut. I can’t keep people away! I’m going to hide them until Christmas.
This is awesome with blobs of raspberry/ apricot jam spotted on top.
Hi Sally! Inwas wondering if I could use an all purpose GF flour blend. Thanks
Hi, Annie! We haven’t tested this recipe with gluten-free flour, but I think it should work just fine. If you give it a try, let us know how it turns out!
Just curious but why vanilla extract and not almond? Thx
We made these today and it’s turned out quite well. I love recipes where I can use my almond flour. We pressed a few cranberries to the slices before chilling. I bought the cornstarch specifically for this but I will ise the remaining box for gravies and for thickening soups.
Thanks for a nice winter recipe!
Can I use stevia instead of sugar?
Hi, Sally! We haven’t tested this recipe with alternate sugars, so I can’t say for sure. Structurally, I think the cookies will be fine if you substitute stevia; I’m just not sure how they would taste! If you try it, let us know how they turned out!
This looks terrific. Any chance that I can use arrowroot flour instead of cornstarch? Or would this change the consistency of the dough? thanks.
I’ve never tried it with arrowroot powder, but the consistency of it is very similar to cornstarch, so it should work just fine.
Thanks for writing!
