Low-Carb Raspberry Jam Filled Sugar Cookies

Makes 24 sandwich cookies

Ingredients:


For the raspberry jam:


12 ounces fresh raspberries

1 Tbsp water

1/4 C Swerve

1 Tbsp chia seeds


For the cookies:


1/4 C coconut flour (I like Anthony's Organic coconut flour)

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

3/4 C Swerve

2 large eggs

1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract (I prefer to use Nielsen-Massey Madagascar Bourbon pure vanilla extract)

1/4 tsp almond extract

2 Tbsp coconut oil, melted

2 Tbsp coconut manna, melted (I only use Nutiva coconut manna, it's the best by far)


Directions:


Start by making the raspberry jam. I usually do this several hours before or the day before making these cookies as it needs to be thoroughly chilled before using.


In a small saucepot over medium-high heat, stir together the raspberries, water, and Swerve and bring to a boil. Turn the heat down to low and add the chia seeds. Continue to simmer until the jam is thickened, about 15 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and place in the refrigerator to cool completely.


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.


In the bowl of a food processor, add the almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, salt, and Swerve. Pulse until combined. Next, add the eggs, vanilla extract, almond extract, melted coconut oil and melted coconut manna. Process until a dough form that pulls away from the sides of the bowl. Remove the dough ball from the food processor and place on a large sheet of parchment paper. Place another large sheet of parchment paper over the dough and, using a rolling pin, roll the dough out to about 1/4 inch in thickness. Remove the top sheet of parchment paper and use cookie cutters of your choice to cut out the sugar cookies. You should get 48 cookies. If you have any excess dough, gather it together and roll it out again until it is all used up. I used a 1 1/2 inch round cookie cutter and a 1/2 inch star-shaped cookie cutter for the cookies pictured.


Place the cookies on your prepared baking sheet and bake for 6 to 8 minutes. Make sure to start checking at 6 minutes as these cookies bake FAST! They should be lightly golden around the edges. Remove from the oven and cool for one minute on the pan before transferring the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.


Once the cookies are completely cooled, sprinkle the cookies, you are using for the top with Confectioners Swerve. Top the bottom portion of the cookie, flat side up, with about 1/2 teaspoon of raspberry jam and then top with the Confectioners Swerve dusted cookie. Voila! Repeat the process until you have sandwiched all of your cookies together. Depending on the size of your cookie cutters, you may want to use more jam. These cookies keep at room temperature in an airtight container for 1-2 days. They then should be stored in the refrigerator or freezer. Enjoy!

The dough rolled out and cut with cookie cutters. Ready for the oven!

So cute!!! Get creative, use different shaped cookie cutters depending on the occasion!

My dough did not pull away from the sides of my processor into a ball even after a long time. I took out the dough and it was super sticky. Any idea what happened? I didn't have coconut manna and used all coconut oil.

Why can I use as a substitute for coconut manna?
