Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 180 Celsius / 350 Fahrenheit

Cookies

  • Mix all the dry ingredients in a food processor or with a blender, then add the butter and combine until you have a smooth dough.
  • Divide into 2 balls and roll out between two sheets of non-stick baking paper.
  • Place in the freezer for 15 minutes. This is an essential step!!
  • Cut into shapes with a cookie cutter of your choice. If the dough has been in the freezer for too long, it might break easily. In this case, just wait a few minutes to continue. Place the cut-outs on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Form the leftovers of the dough into a ball, roll out again and repeat the freezer step.
  • Bake your first batch for 6-7 minutes until the edges are just beginning to brown.
  • Let cool completely before glazing. These cookies are VERY FRAGILE when straight out of the oven. They firm up as they cool down. 

Chocolate Drizzle

  • Slowly melt chocolate in a water bath (see post) or in a pot over a low heat. You can also do it in a microwave in 30 second bursts. Add powdered sweetener and stir until combined. 
  • Fill into a ziplock bag, pierce a hole and drizzle over the cooled cookies.

Notes

Options for the chocolate drizzle:
You can use unsweetened chocolate such as Montezuma's in the UK (also available at Sainsbury's) or alternatively a chocolate with 90% cocoa solids such as Lindt, which is very low in sugar. 
In the US there's a popular stevia-sweetened sugar free chocolate  brand called Lily's
You can also make AMAZINGLY DELICIOUS homemade sugar free chocolate with cacao butter, cocoa powder and sweetener! Recipe is in this post - sugar free chocolate chips
