I've had some coconut flour in my cupboard for the last little while and have not tried it. So I sat and wondered what it would taste like in a cookie. One way to find out. I pried myself out of my chair and raced to the kitchen (see what boredom can do to you).
Here is what I ended up making and it wasn't too awfully bad. Do note, these are not very sweet, more buttery than anything else but they hit the spot. You could increase the sugar or sweetener if you like.
edit: I am reposting this recipe as it is National Homemade Cookie Day and everyone should enjoy a homemade cookie, don't you think?
Coconut Almond Butter Cookie with Lemon Filling
Preheat oven to 375 F
1 stick butter (I used sweet salted) at room temp
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup Coconut Flour (I used King Arthur)
1/2 cup Almond Flour (I used Bob Red Mills)
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup heavy cream (you don't have to add this, they spread out more when I did)
Lemon Curd (I had Dickinson's Lemon Curd on hand. You could use any jam or jelly or even a pie filling)
1. Cream together the butter and sugar
2. Add the egg and incorporate completely
3. Add vanilla
4. Whisk together all the dry ingredients and add to the wet
5. Add the cream slowly, only add enough to make the dough wet
I used a cookie scoop onto parchment paper. Then I used the back of a spoon (measuring spoon) to make a hollow. I pushed down lightly and then gave a little twist and then lift. You can also see the consistency of the dough.
