Valentines Day Almond Shortbread Cookies!

Servings 1 dozen


  • 2 cups + 2 tbsp almond flour (I use Trader Joe's brand)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp melted vegan butter (I use Earth Balance)
  • 2 tbsp melted coconut oil
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • jam of choice

Pink Drizzle

  • 1/2 cup organic powdered sugar (Using organic ensures that it's vegan)
  • 1/4 tsp almond extract
  • 1 tbsp plant-based milk (+more or less, depending on desired consistency)
  • Food coloring of your choice


  1. Preheat oven to 350.

  2. In a large bowl combine all ingredients. Stir, until ingredients are just mixed together.

  3. Roll dough into 2 inch balls, and place on un-greased cookie sheets. 

  4. Make a small hole in the center of each ball, using your finger (These cookies won't spread). Fill hole with jam of your choice.

  5. Bake for 12 minutes. 

Pink Drizzle

  1. Mix together the powdered sugar, 1/2 teaspoon almond extract, and plant milk until smooth. Add more or less to get the consistency that you want. Add in food coloring - I use a powder form (made from beets!). Drizzle over cookies with a fork, or by cutting the bottom tip of a ziplock bag.

  2. Enjoy!
