Ingredients

1 cup of millet flour

1 cup of all-purpose flour

1 cup of unsalted butter (You can also opt for coconut oil or vegan alternatives)

1 teaspoon of almond extract

3/4 cup of powdered sugar

1/2 teaspoon of salt (only with unsalted butter)

Recipe:

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees
  • Mix powdered sugar, all-purpose flour, millet flour, and salt together in a bowl
  • In a separate bowl, mix butter and almond extract together (creamy texture)
  • Add dry ingredients to the butter and almond extract and mix evenly (I prefer using my hands as it’s easier to mix)
  • Press dough into a oven-safe pan with about 1/2 an inch of thickness
  • Bake for about 30 minutes or until golden brown on top. Keep an eye out because time will vary depending on the thickness
  • Let cool, cut, decorate and enjoy 🙂
    • I decorated with melted Godiva dark-chocolate and homemade vanilla frosting.
    • Frosting: Powdered sugar, creamy butter, and two drops of food coloring.

TIP: You can add dry fruits, nuts, etc. to the cookies if you want to have a variety. Just mix with the dry ingredients at the beginning.

EXTRA TIP: Get creative and make cut-out cookies with your favorite shapes. This will be great during the holidays!
