Hold Short and Wait
That’s how I have felt this year.
I wish it was otherwise. But I am so thankful for everyone who was sane, showed empathy, and compassion for their fellow Americans.
I did not fly this year. I was willing to hold short and wait for my fellow countrymen as we figured out the unusual times we were going through. 2021 will continue these challenges. And I will continue to support whatever is safe to get us through these troubling times.
So while we hold short and wait, here are some cookies to celebrate the holidays and bring in 2021
2 cups Blanched Almond Flour
1/4 cup Maple Syrup
1/4 cup Coconut Oil
1 tsp Cardamom powder
2 tbsp. Orange Zest
1 tbsp. Lemon Zest
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 cup granulated sugar
Juice of one orange
1 tsp vanilla essence
In a bowl, mix almond flour, baking power, orange zest, lemon zest, cardamom powder, coconut oil, coconut oil and maple syrup.
Refrigerate the mix for 30-60 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
When ready to bake, layout dough between parchment sheets, roll and cut with airplane cookie cutters and layout on a baking sheet.
Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden.
Decorate with desired icing.
