These soft lemony cookies are super-quick to prepare and make a great gluten-free cookie option. Made with almond flour and packed with lemon flavours, these cookies are so addictive.
Almond flour is a super fine flour made from blanched almonds and is a great ingredient in gluten-free cookies and desserts.
It can be used on its own or mixed with other gluten-free flours such as coconut, chestnut, buckwheat or rice flours.
Check out our simple cookies made only with almond flour or simple Christmas cookies made with a mix of gluten-free flours.
The almond flours vary from brand to brand. Be sure to use the quality and fresh one for your baking. One of the best brands is Blue Diamond almond flour, which is finely ground and tastes amazingly nutty.
First combine ALMOND FLOUR with BAKING SODA and SALT in one bowl. In another bowl, beat BUTTER and SUGAR using a hand mixer for a few minutes, then add EGG YOLK, finely grated LEMON ZEST and AMARETTO.
Mix for another minute, then fold in almond flour to get a smooth dough. Shaping cookies is so easy with this dough. Just scoop the dough using a teaspoon, roll into balls and arrange on the sheet. Flatten slightly each ball and bake for about 10 minutes. Leave them on the sheet to cool.
Cookies are still not ready, we will drizzle them with lemon icing to make them more attractive and to give them extra zesty flavour. Making lemon glaze is so simple and quick.
You will need ICING SUGAR and LEMON JUICE - whisk them together until smooth. The tartness of the lemon juice tempers the sweetness of the sugar, resulting in a drizzle that's deliciously refreshing without being too acidic.
Once cookies are completely cool, place the lemon glaze in the plastic freezer bag, cut off the tiny corner and drizzle over the cookies. Allow the drizzle to dry - it will give a delicious texture that makes eating this lemon drizzle cookies an even greater joy.
These almond flour lemon cookies keep well in an airtight container in a cool dry place for 3-4 days. If they soften due to humidity, you can bake them in the oven at low temperature for a few minutes.
Your cookies will love great in this glass cookie jar which keeps them fresh for days.
