6 TBSP butter
2 cups almond flour (Bob’s Redmill)
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 tea freshly grated lemon zest

These cookies are delicious and fresh! Melt the butter in the microwave in your mixing bowl. Add the almond flour, sugar and lemon zest and stir until fully combined.

Form the mixture – which will be crumbly into a cylinder shape – then wrap very tightly with plastic wrap. Place into Refrigerator for 2 hours OR into the freezer for 45 minutes until dough is very firm.

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
With a Sharp Knife, slice the dough into half inch thick cookies, and place onto cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or sprayed with nonstick cooking oil. Bake for 15 minutes until golden brown.

Allow cookies to cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan. Serve with jasmine green tea or milk.
