  • 1 cup erythritol (400 g/ 14.1 oz)
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon ,
  • 1 teaspoon anise seed (400 g/ 14.1 oz)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg (400 g/ 14.1 oz)
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper ,
  • 2 teaspoons gluten-free baking powder (400 g/ 14.1 oz)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest (400 g/ 14.1 oz)
  • 2 large eggs ,
  • 1/4 cup butter (400 g/ 14.1 oz)
  • 3/4 cup coconut butter (400 g/ 14.1 oz)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon (400 g/ 14.1 oz)
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds (400 g/ 14.1 oz)
  • 30 drops liquid stevia (400 g/ 14.1 oz)

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 160 °C/ 320 °F. Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl and add freshly grated lemon zest. Add the eggs, melted ghee (or coconut oil) and mix until well combined. Using your hands, make 26 cookie dough balls and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Using the back of a glass, flatten each piece until about 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick. Twist the glass to release the cookies without breaking them. You can use a fork to flatten the cookies instead of the glass. Place in the oven and bake for 12-15 minutes or until lightly browned. Set aside on a rack until completely cooled. Meanwhile, prepare the glaze. To soften the coconut butter, place it in a double boiler or a glass bowl on top of a small saucepan filled with a cup of water. Bring to a boil over a medium heat and let it melt. Alternatively, microwave for 15-20 seconds. Add cinnamon (or ground anise) and mix well. When the cookies are cooled, spoon the glaze on top of each (1 heaping teaspoon per cookie) and add a sprinkle of toasted flaked almonds. Let the glaze solidify for a few minutes. Store in a cookie jar for up to a week or freeze for up to 3 months.
