Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups almond flour (around 1 cup of almonds, processed to a powder in a food processor)
  • ½ cup wholewheat pastry flour (can substitute with all-purpose)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 3 tsp EnerG egg replacer powder mixed with 4 tbsp water
  • ¾ cup powdered sugar (I like my ookies a little less cloyingly sweet but add a whole cup if you like them sweet)

Instructions

  • Mix together the almond flour, pastry flour and baking powder.
  • In a food processor, or by hand, add to the flour mixture the sugar, the two extracts, and the egg-replacer mixture. If using a food processor, pulse a few times to mix the ingredients.
  • The dough will be sticky. With a teaspoon, place rounded mounds of the mixture on a cookie sheet greased well, or covered with parchment paper and then greased.
  • Bake in a preheated 300-degree oven about 25-30 minutes until the tops are lightly browned, and the bottoms are a deeper, richer golden-brown.
  • Place the sheet on a rack to cool about 10 minutes. Then, using a thin spatula, remove the cookies from the cookie sheet and place directly on the rack to cool thoroughly.
  • When cooled, sprinkle tops with some powdered confectioners sugar.
