Ingredients

  • Cookies
  • 2 c. almond flour

  • 1 c. finely chopped pecans

  • 2 tbsp. coconut flour

  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder

  • 1/4 tsp. kosher salt

  • 1/2 c. (1 stick) butter, softened

  • 2/3 c. Swerve brown sugar (or regular Swerve and 2 tsp. Yacon syrup)

  • 1 large egg

  • 1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract

  • Vanilla Glaze
  • 2/3 c. powdered Swerve sweetener or powdered erythritol

  • 6 to 8 tbsp. heavy cream

  • 1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract

Directions

  • Cookies
  • Preheat oven to 325° and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, whisk together almond flour, chopped pecans, coconut flour, baking powder, and salt.
  • In a large bowl, beat butter with Swerve until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Beat in egg and vanilla extract. Beat in almond flour mixture until dough comes together. 
  • Form dough into 3/4″, then roll between palms and shape into crescents. Place on prepared baking sheets.
  • Bake 15 to 18 minutes, or until just lightly golden brown. They will not be firm to the touch, but will firm up as they cool. Cool on the sheets.
  • Glaze
  • Whisk powdered Swerve with 1/4 cup cream and vanilla extract until smooth. Add 1 tablespoon more cream at a time until a thin but spreadable consistency is achieved.
  • Spread on cooled cookies and decorate as desired. 
  • Alternatively, simply roll cookies in powdered sweetener.
