INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 cup gluten free all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt 
  • 1 tsp cornstarch 
  • 1 tsp baking powder 
  • 1/2 cup coconut/ xylitol / monk fruit
  • 1/2 cup unsalted, organic, plant-based butter 
  • 1 egg at room temperature 
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract 
  • 1/4 cup no sugar added, dried cranberries; roughly chopped 

3 Tbsp roasted, salted pistachios; roughly chopped 

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees and line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper. 
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, salt, cornstarch, and baking powder. Set aside. 
  3. In a large mixing bowl, beat the xylitol and butter with an electric hand mixer until it is light, fluffy, and pale in color. 
  4. Add in the egg and vanilla; beat until well combined. 
  5. Gradually stir the flour mixture into the butter mixture, stirring just until combined, and the dough forms a ball.  Stir in the cranberries and pistachios. 
  6. Using a cookie scoop, scoop the dough into balls on the prepared cookie sheet, pressing down until they are about 1/2 inch thick. 
  7. Bake until the edges just begin to turn golden brown, about 13-14 minutes. They will still feel very soft and unbaked; that is good. 

Let them cool on the cookie tray for 5 minutes, and then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.
