The Sugar Cookie Dough

To make the sugar cookies, begin by whisking Almond Flour, Coconut Flour, and salt together in a medium bowl, then set aside.

Next, cream together butter and swerve granulated sweetener with a hand mixer in a large bowl.

Add the eggs and vanilla extract, and continue beating until well combined.

Finally, add the flour mixture and beat until the dough is very crumbly and will form a dough ball.

Wrap the cookie dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. I refrigerated one batch overnight, and it still worked perfectly. You should be able to refrigerate the dough for up to 48 hours before baking.

Once the dough is chilled and ready to be rolled out, preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.

Roll out the chilled dough between 2 pieces of parchment paper to desired thickness (the thinner they are, the crunchier the cookie will be. I recommend rolling out to about 1/3 inch thickness)

Using your favorite holiday cookie cutters, cut out the shapes and place on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.

Ball the “scrap” dough back up, re-roll and re-cut, repeating the process until all the dough is used.

Bake at 325 degrees F for 8-12 minutes (depending on thickness), and until the edges just start to brown.

Remove from the oven and allow the cookies to cool for about 15 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.

The Buttercream Icing

While the cookies are cooling, prepare the buttercream icing.

In a large bowl, cream together the butter and cream cheese with a hand mixer.

Then, add the powdered swerve, vanilla extract, and vanilla cream stevia and continue to beat until well combined.

Slowly add the heavy cream until the frosting reaches the desired thickness.
