Disclaimer: I tried the recipe for these AIP Lemon Rosemary Cookies 3 times before I decided to share it on my blog. I wanted to make sure they were as good as I thought, and ensure the dough had the best texture possible… while being completely gluten free, grain free, dairy free and compliant to the Autoimmune Protocol (AIP).
Try them out and tell me they aren’t absolutely amazing!!
You know those butter cookies that melt in your mouth and at each bite you feel so guilty because it seems like you’re eating a delicious waterfall of butter?
Well, these AIP Lemon Rosemary Cookies are the Autoimmune Protocol compliant recreation of the original, which of course is much healthier and has no butter at all. Also, since there is absolutely no sugar nor sweetener in there, I thought that adding lemon juice and chopped rosemary could be a great touch to enhance the flavor.
If you don’t mind baking these “butter-less “butter cookies” with a touch of liquor (alcohol will evaporate while baking), you can also replace the lemon juice for Limoncello… and the taste it’s even better!!
But let’s get to the actual recipe now, and I will explain all that to you in the procedure!!
AIP Lemon Rosemary Cookies
For the Cookies:
For the Toppings:
- Zest of ½ Lemon
- ¼ tsp finely chopped Rosemary
- Preheat the oven to 350 F.
- In a mixing bowl combine tigernut flour and tapioca and mix well.
- Add in the lemon zest and finely chopped rosemary and, when it’s well mixed, add all the remaining wet ingredients and knead well with your hands until you get a nice and compact ball of dough.
- Helping yourself with a rolling pin, roll down the dough on a wooden board (or, if you don’t have it, you can simply place a sheet of parchment paper on the table) until ¼ of an inch thick.
- Using a circular cookie cutter, cut out your AIP Lemon Rosemary Cookies and place a frozen blueberry in the middle of each one.
- Place your cookies on a baking pan lined with parchment paper and bake for 15 minutes.
- Sprinkle the remaining lemon zest and chopped rosemary on top and you are ready to enjoy your AIP cookies!
- Make sure to let them cool down completely before storing them in an air tight container so they maintain their friability.
So, now that you tried the recipe, what do you say? Don’t you agree on that these AIP Lemon Rosemary Cookies taste like actual butter cookies?
