Why You Should Make This Iced Sugar Cookies Recipe
You shouldn't feel deprived during the holidays while trying to maintain a healthy sugar free lifestyle. I always bring some treats to parties and gatherings so I know I can enjoy at least one dessert guilt free.
These beautiful cookies are perfect for holiday gifts too. Who doesn't love a homemade gift? And these iced sugar cookies will be ready in no time, the hardest part is waiting for them to chill in the refrigerator and bake in the oven.
- Almond flour - I use the super fine almond flour in all of my baked goods because it lends the lightest, ideal texture, especially in gluten free desserts.
- Coconut flour - Coconut flour is light, naturally sugar free and low in carbs which makes it extremely versatile for low carb baking. I always use this coconut flour for my baking. I love baking with both almond and coconut flour for the perfect texture.
- Monk fruit - I used the granular form of Monk Fruit for this recipe. The brand I use all the time is this one. You can also substitute with the sugar free alternative of your choice.
- Butter - I use 100% grass-fed butter because it just plain old tastes better!
- Egg - I use cage free, organic eggs but you can use whatever you have in the house. Use eggs that are room temperature instead of ones straight out of the refrigerator for a better texture.
- Vanilla extract - I use pure vanilla extract which doesn’t contain any artificial flavors or additives, it’s just pure vanilla made from alcohol. I use this one.
- Heavy whipping cream - I use the Organic Whipping Cream from Trader Joe's that is located near the milk.
- Sugar free sprinkles - I love these sugar free, gluten free sprinkles so much. They are so fun and festive and can be used for so many desserts!
How To Make This Iced Sugar Cookies Recipe
In a bowl add and mix the almond flour and the coconut flour. In another bowl add and beat the sugar, butter egg and vanilla extract.
Keep the mixer on and slowly add in your flour, then mix with your hands until you get a dough. Place the dough in the fridge to chill for 30 minutes.
With the dough form 3 balls and begin to roll out the first ball of dough to ¼ inch thick. Cut your cookies with a circular cookie cutter and do the same with the other 2 dough balls.
Place each cookie in the prepared baking sheet with parchment paper and bake for 8 minutes until the borders are golden.
Make the icing by mixing together 3 tablespoons of heavy whipping cream and the erythritol until creamy. Allow to cool on a wire rack and then spread icing on top and add sprinkles.
