These peppermint cookies are amazing and a perfect treat for the holidays! If you need to bring a treat to a holiday party consider these your go-to. You can also top these with Paleo frosting to make them more festive!
1/2 cup grass-fed butter
1/2 cup coconut palm sugar
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1 1⁄4 cup tapioca flour
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/4 tsp. baking soda
3 tbsp. water
3 oz. Peppermint Tea, brewed
1/4 cup raw agave nectar (you can substitute for honey, we use agave for allergy reasons)
Arrowroot flour as a non-stick base for rolling
Pre-heat the oven to 325° F.
Place foil or parchment paper sheets over your baking sheet. This will prevent your cookies from sticking.
Combine the tapioca flour, coconut flour, baking soda and sea salt in a small bowl.
In a food processor (or using a large bowl and an electric hand mixer) beat the butter and sugar for approximately 2 minutes, or until fluffy.(keep your butter in the fridge until you’re ready to blend, cold butter makes the cookies easier to cut)
Brew 3 oz. of Peppermint Tea.
Add the dry ingredients, water, agave and tea to the butter and sugar mixture and beat until well combined.
Lightly dust arrowroot flour on a clean counter.
Using a rolling-pin, roll the cookie dough until 1/4 inch thick and then cut out your cookies using a cookie cutter. (If the dough is too soft place it back in the fridge until it hardens slightly.)
Place the cookies on your lined baking sheet and bake for 12-14 minutes.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes before serving.
Giving these cookies enough time to cool is critical, if you serve them warm they tend to be a little crumbly. For more fantastic cookies take a look at our Giveaways page to see how you can get your free copy of Quick & Fantastic Paleo Cookies.
