Cream the shortening and sugar together. Mix in egg and extract. In another bowl whisk together flour mix, xanthan gum, and baking powder.
Add dry ingredients to creamed ones and mix well. Roll into small balls and roll into the almond flour and place onto parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Then flatten the rounds down with a fork.
Bake for 7-9 minutes or until cookies are just golden. Let cool.Melt the chocolate in a double boiler. Then you can either dip the cookies into the chocolate or drizzle the chocolate on them.
I even added a few sprinkle to a few…Almond Cookies

  1. Hi, I found your post from Healthy 2 Day Wednesday, these cookies looked inviting πŸ™‚
    I will be trying these soon, YUM! The only thing is, I am not sure if I feel comfortable with xanthan gum, what is it from? Is there an alternative? Maybe arrow root powder? Is it more of a starch?

    Thanks for posting! πŸ™‚
