Cookies
  1. 2 cups almond flour
  2. 1 cup finely chopped pecans
  3. 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  4. ½ teaspoon baking powder
  5. ¼ teaspoon salt
  6. ½ cup butter, softened
  7. ½ cup granulated sugar, Swerve Sweetener, or other sugar substitute
  8. 1 large egg
  9. 1 tablespoon molasses (optional)
  10. ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  11. 25 drops stevia extract
Vanilla Glaze
  1. ⅔ cup powdered sugar, Swerve Sweetener, or other sugar substitute
  2. 6 to 8 tablespoons heavy cream
  3. ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together almond flour, chopped pecans, coconut flour, baking powder, and salt.
  3. In a large bowl, beat butter with sugar until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Beat in egg, molasses, vanilla, and stevia extract. Beat in almond flour mixture until dough comes together.
  4. Form dough into ¾-inch balls, then roll between palms and shape into crescents. Set on prepared baking sheets and bake 18 minutes, or until just lightly golden brown. They will not be firm to the touch, but will firm up as they cool. Remove from oven and let cool.
  5. For the glaze, whisk powdered sugar with ¼ cup cream and vanilla extract until smooth. Add more cream 1 tablespoon at a time until a thin but spreadable consistency is achieved. Spread on cooled cookies and decorate as desired.
