INGREDIENTS

 

INSTRUCTIONS

Cookies

  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Microwave the butter for 30 seconds to melt, but it shouldn't be hot.
  2. Place the butter into a mixing bowl and beat with the sweetener and salt. Add the vanilla extract, orange extract, and egg, mix together. Add food coloring to get orange color
  3. In separate bowl, combine dry ingredients (almond flour, xanthan gum, baking powder, and orange zest)
  4. Beat in the dry mixture into wet mixture (do this in stages; mix in half then the other half)
  5. Using a cookie scooper (4 tsp size; 2 1/4" diameter), place scoops of dough onto a baking pan lined with parchment paper
  6. Press the balls of dough down until they are flat like a cookie. Bake for 12 minutes (at 6 minutes, take pans out, rotate positions, and put back in the oven)

Chocolate Coating

  1. Place your chocolate in a small, microwave-safe bowl. Place in microwave and zap it for 30 seconds at a time until the chocolate is fully melted. Make sure to do this in 30 second increments or you could burn the chocolate.
  2. Using a spoon or spatula, scoop the melted chocolate and drizzle it on to the top of the cookies. Let the chocolate and cookies cool, and serve. Keep in an airtight container (best if kept refrigerated).
