This delicious cookie dough was made last week and I froze it to bake fresh cookies whenever I wanted. Every couple of days I removed a few pre-scooped frozen cookie dough balls and baked them so I could have fresh almond flour cookies all month. BEST IDEA I’VE EVER HAD!

What you will need to make the soft and chewy almond flour cookies

I used vegan butter but you can use real butter if you prefer just be sure that whatever butter you are using, it’s at room temperature before you start. If you are like me and never remember to take out the butter two hours before starting here’s a quick way to get your butter soft. You can chop the butter into cubes, place them in a bowl, reduce your microwave power to 50% and cook for 30-50 seconds or until soft.

Once my butter was at room temperature and soft, I added it to a mixer (a handheld mixer will also work) with the brown sugar using a whisk attachment and creamed it together until it was light and fluffy. Then I added the remaining wet ingredients and then the dry until my dough came together. You can make a batch of cookies right then before chilling if you absolutely can’t wait but if you wait the edges crisp so nicely and just trust that it’s worth waiting for the chill.
