Almond Flour Tea Cookies

There is something about hot tea and warm cookies that makes me feel all warm and cozy inside… like I want to curl up in my PJs and not leave my couch for hours.

Well, except to get more cookies that is.

Almond Flour Tea Cookies
 
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
 
Serves: 10
Ingredients
Cookies:
  • 3 cups Almond Flour
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon plus ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • scant ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 Tablespoon raw natural honey
  • 1 egg white
Glaze:
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Mix all cookie ingredients in a bowl until the mixture is smooth. I recommend using your hands. If the mixture is dry and cracking, add about ½ Tablespoon of water and mix again until the dough comes together and is smooth.
  3. If using cookie cutters: dust a large piece of parchment paper with powdered sugar and roll the dough out until it is about ⅓ inch thick. Use cookie cutters to cut the cookies into a desired shape and place the cookies on the baking sheet leaving about ½ inch of space in between each cookie.
  4. Without cookie cutters: Use a tablespoon to scoop balls of dough. Roll in your hands to form a smooth ball. Place on the baking sheet leaving about ½ inch of space in between each cookie. Flatten the balls with your palm.
  5. Bake the cookies for 12 minutes and then remove and cool completely on wire racks.
  6. To make the glaze, mix the three ingredients in a bowl. The glaze will be thick. When the cookies are completely cool, take a butter knife and spread a thin layer of glaze on each cookie. Let the cookies rest until the glaze is completely dry. Store the cookies in an airtight container.
