Ingredients

For the Cookies

  • 2 1/4 cups almond flour
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest
  • 1 stick grass-fed butter softened
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil melted
  • 1/4 cup monk fruit sweetener or granular erythritol
  • 3/4 cup Sukrin Gold lightly packed
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup sugar-free syrup

For the Royal Icing

  • 3 egg whites
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2-3 cups confectioner erythritol

Instructions

For the Cookies

  • Combine the flours, baking soda, xanthan gum, salt, and spices in a large bowl.
  • In a separate large bowl, beat the orange zest, butter, oil, sweetener, and Sukrin Gold with an electric mixer for 3 minutes.
  • Beat in the egg and syrup for another couple minutes.
  • Slowly beat in flour mixture in three batches, beating in between each until the dough is fully incorporated.
  • Place the dough in plastic wrap and flatten slightly into a fat disc shape.
  • Freeze for 1 hour or refrigerate for 3 hours.
  • Heat your oven to 350°F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper. (If you don't have 2 baking sheets, just make your cookies in batches.)
  • Roll out the dough in between two layers of parchment so that it is about 1/4 inch thick.
  • Use cookie cutters to cut out various shapes from the dough.
  • Transfer the cookies onto the lined baking sheets and bake for 6-10 minutes or until lightly browned.

For the Royal Icing

  • Beat the egg whites and vanilla extract with an electric mixer until it is frothy.
  • Slowly add in the confectioner erythritol - only add 1/4 cup at a time.
  • Add in the almond milk to make it a good piping consistency.
  • Place the frosting in piping bag or Ziploc bag and snip a tiny corner off the tip.
  • Decorate the cookies and enjoy!
