Birthday Butter Cookies

Butter Cookies

Another version of the Raw Cashew Cookies, this one is a bit more indulgent and tastes a little like a snickerdoodle. 

Makes 20 cookies 

  •  2 C dates
  • 1.5 C raw cashews
  • 1/2 C raw macadamias
  • 1 T coconut nectar (or maple syrup) (optional)
  • 1/4 t sea salt
  • 1/4 t cinnamon

Coating 

  • 1/4 C almond flour
  • Dash sea salt
  • Dash date sugar (or coconut sugar) (optional)

Blend all cookie ingredients in the food processor until the dough sticks together when pressed between your fingers. Remove and roll into balls (or flatten into cookie shapes). Roll in topping and dust with the slightest bit of sea salt. The macadamia nuts and salt are the key to making these taste like butter cookies. The cinnamon makes them taste like they’re baked. Enjoy!
