Gluten Free Butter Cookies

Butter is just one of those things that I have loved since I was a child.  Don’t get me wrong, I don’t sit there and eat it with a spoon or anything.  But I love butter on toast, on pasta, eggs cooked in it, and put on just about any kind of bread.

I just love how it tastes WITH things.

These gluten-free butter cookies will give you just a hint of that delicious butter combined with cinnamon sweetness.  

Pretty much an incredibly versatile cookie that can be made year-round for any occasion!  But who needs an occasion?  Make these any time!

How Do You Make Gluten Free Cookies Less Crumbly?

There are actually many ways, but I have one little secret.  Are you ready for it?  I use coconut flour!  If you add some coconut flour in addition to the almond flour, it makes them a little fluffier as well as chewier. 

I have an absolutely AMAZING keto chocolate chip cookie recipe that has optional coconut flour.  Without it, the cookies spread out more and are crispier.  With the coconut flour, they are fluffier and chewy!  

It is definitely my little secret for easily adjuting the crunch or chewiness of a cookie!

Are These Low Carb Butter Cookies Crunchy or Chewy?

These cookies are definitely soft and chewy. What makes them unique is that while they are chewy, they do have a slight baked crunch on the outside. 

Using less coconut flour will result in a slightly crunchier cookie if that is what you are looking for!

How Do You Store Butter Cookies?

It is best to store these tasty gluten-free butter cookies in an airtight container.    I also recommend storing them in the refrigerator.  I mean, that is assuming they aren’t eaten up in the first hour!  

They should stay fresh for a good 3-4 days if stored properly.  I keep them for longer, but 3-4 days is the safe recommendation!

How To Make Gluten Free Butter Cookies

Gluten Free Butter Cookies

First, let’s get that oven preheated to 325 degrees.

In a medium bowl, mix together almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, sea salt, cinnamon and xanthan gum. Mix well and set aside.

In a large bowl, add butter, sweetener, vanilla and egg. Using a hand beater, mix until combined.

Now, we combine the wet and dry ingredients, so add the flour mixture to the egg mixture and continue beating with hand beaters.

Place on a cookie sheet in rows.  They will spread out just slightly, but not much.  They will mostly hold their shape.

Bake for 20 minutes or until lightly golden brown.
