Lemon Zest Cookies

I made Lemon Zest Cookies today!  They turned out really good!

Here's the recipe I used.

  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 6 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup Pyure
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • Zest of one lemon
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp Pyure liquid stevia extract

  1. Preheat oven to 325F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, and salt.
  3. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese, sweetener, egg, lemon zest, lemon juice and stevia extract. Beat in almond flour mixture until well combined.
  4. Form by hand into 8 to 10 even balls. Flatten with the palm of your hand to about 1/2 inch thick circles.
  5. Bake about 20 minutes, until set and just barely brown around the edges. Remove and let cool on pan.
