Friendly Halloween Linzer Cookies - fun to make and eat
  • 3 cups almond flour
  • ½ cup coconut palm sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ⅓ cup + 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ⅓ cup jam of your choice (I used mango jam mixed with strawberry jam)
  • 3 tablespoons coconut flakes (for dusting the cookies)
  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. Mix the dry ingredients (almond flour, coconut palm sugar, cinnamon) in a big bowl.
  3. Beat the egg in another bowl. Melt the coconut oil under low heat. Mix the melted coconut oil with the vanilla extract and the egg.
  4. Pour the dry ingredients over the wet ingredients stirring gently to combine everything into a well-mixed dough. Let the dough sit for 15 minutes so the almond flour absorbs all the liquid.
  5. The dough will be oily, but do not worry. The cookies won't be oily.
  6. Spread the dough (1/4 inch thick) on a cutting board with a rolling pin and with your hands. I mostly used my hands.
  7. Cut the dough into shapes. If you use Linzer cookie cutters, you will end up having some full circles (they will be the bottom cookies) and some circles with shapes inside (they will be the top cookies). Place the cookies on 2 parchment-lined cookie sheets.
  8. Bake in the oven for 12-13 minutes until they become lightly brown on the surface.
  9. Remove the cookie sheets from the oven, let the cookies sit on the cookie sheets for 5 minutes to cool off, then place the cookies on a plate.
  10. Spread jam on the bottom cookies and cover them with the top cookies.
  11. If you used regular cookie cutters, you can eat the cookies without jam or you can spread a thin layer of jam on top. They are delicious either way.
  12. Process the coconut flakes in a food processor until they become powdery. Sprinkle on the cookies.
  13. Store the cookies in the fridge in an air-tight container. These Friendly Halloween Linzer Cookies freeze well, so you can make them in advance and thaw them on Halloween day.
