Party like it's 12-21-12

Happy Yule all!!

December thus far as been very full of bronchitis, traveling and planning for the solstice bash that we threw on Friday. You know before the world ended. Except it didn't.  

Good thing really, it gives me more time to enjoy these grain and dairy free Almendrados and hopefully you will as well as soon as you make them.

These are very easy to whip up. Some might say too easy...


preheat your oven to 350 degrees

Mix together ~

2.5 cups almond flour
1 t cinnamon
4 t lemon zest
1/2 cup honey [add two more tablespoons if you want them sweeter]
1 egg
sprinkle of salt

This forms a soft sticky dough. If needed chill it so that you can handle it with ease.

Form dough into walnut shaped blobs, dust with more cinnamon, and press an almond down in the center of the cookie. This movement will flatten the cookie into a disc.

Bake these on a parchment paper lined baking sheet for 15 minutes or until the edges are golden.
These freeze well and are heavenly with coffee.

makes 2 dozen

Wishing everyone a very happy, peaceful and sweet end to December. xox

Wow, those sound delicious! I'm off to Trader Joe's in just a minute and will look for almond flour (not a staple of my pantry, alas).

Happy new year, dear one!

I don't think I have ever seen almond flour at TJ's but the Bob's Red Mill brand has it and many large grocery stores carry that.
I buy it in bulk from my coop so that doesn't help many people.

You could start out with 2 cups of blanched almonds and whir them in your food processor to start as a substitute.

Happy 2013!!
