  • cup 70g almond flour
  • 3 tablespoon 30g coconut flour
  • ½ teaspoon xanthan gum
  • Pinch of salt
  • 5 tablespoon 70g granulated sweetener like from Sukrin, Swerve, or use allulose
  • 3 tablespoon 42g butter, room temperature
  • 2 tablespoon 30g cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 medium egg, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Combine all dry ingredients for the cookies in a big mixing bowl and set aside.
  • Take a medium mixing bowl, place the room temperature butter in it, and cream it using a spatula. Add the sweetener, cream cheese, egg, and vanilla extract, and mix it with the hand mixer until soft and creamy.
  • Combine the wet and dry ingredients well, form the dough into a ball, wrap it in a plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 30 mins.
  • Preheat the oven to 165C (325F).
  • Take the dough out from the fridge, unwrap it, and roll it out into a 4mm (0.2 inches) thick sheet between two pieces of parchment paper.
  • Using your favorite cookie cutters, cut out the cookies and carefully transfer them onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Gather the scraps of dough and re-roll until all dough is used. During the baking process the cookies won’t spread, so you can put them close together.
  • Bake on the middle rack of the oven for 15 - 18 mins or until the edges are golden.
  • Remove from the oven and let them cool down a little bit on a baking sheet. Then, transfer onto a cooling rack and let cool completely. The cookies will still be quite soft when just removed from the oven, but will firm up as they cool.
