  • Transfer to refrigerator for 1 hour to firm up before cutting into shapes.

Notes

Make It Personal:
  • You can also add ground ginger to this recipe to turn these into the perfect paleo gingerbread biscuit.
  • Add orange zest and or cacao powder for a choc-orange or chocolate flavour.
Recipe Tips:
  • You can make these Christmas cookies in advance. Simply store in an air-tight container.
  • If you live in a cool climate you can skip refrigerating your dough before cutting. However, in the Australian Summer humidity this recipe works best if you refrigerator your rolled out dough before cutting into shapes. Your cut outs will be much easier and hold their shape when transferring to your baking tray.
Sensitive to FODMAPs?
  • Almonds are generally tolerated up to 10-15 per serve.
