ASD Recovery Recipe: Basic Cookies

This recipe I can’t credit to any particular source, because by now I’ve made it so many times and changed it around so much that it’s an amalgam of different recipes and my own kitchen needs. This is our most basic recipe for baked cookies. Let me forewarn that, without eggs or anything that should not be eaten raw, the dough is edible. That’s a danger.

3 cups nut flour (usually, I use 2 cups almond and 1 cup hazelnut)
1 ripe pear, puréed
1/4 cup honey
1/3 cup coconut oil
3 tsps vanilla extract
1/4-1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda

Combine all ingredients and mix well. Form into little balls, place on an oiled (my choice is usually coconut, almond, or macademia oil) cookie sheet, and flatten into cookie discs. Bake 10-15 minutes at 300° until the cookies are golden but not yet brown.

I made these cookies this morning, for Martin to take to a birthday party this afternoon. For an added kick a whisked I quail egg and used it to glaze the cookies before baking. This had a two-fold benefit. First, it gave the finished cookies a shiny professional appearance. Second, because I don’t eat eggs, it will keep me from stealing the delicious morsels from Martin.
