I made Frozen-inspired snowflake Paleo spritz cookies that don’t need a cookie press. They are crisp, butter cookies that almost have a shortbread texture. They are made by squeezing the dough out of a piping bag fitted with a large star tip and twisting. They hold their shape really well. I used coconut palm sugar because it was the only sweetener that would allow me to achieve a crisp cookie. Honey or maple syrup just wouldn’t give the same result. I know that the sugar sprinkles are not Paleo, they are simply for decorating purposes!
Do you have any Paleo Christmas cookies baking traditions? We get so many cookies and treats brought to our door at Christmas time. It’s so nice and sweet of everyone, but it’s hard when I can’t eat anything they bring. Luckily, a few neighbors bring non-sweet gifts. This year I’m thinking about bringing around paperwhite bulbs planted in little flower pots because I love mine I bought a few weeks ago. Do you bake Paleo Christmas cookies just for yourself or for the neighbors? Let me know in the comments.*Please note that most of the links on this page are affiliate links.

They are crisp, butter cookies that almost have a shortbread texture. They are made by squeezing the dough out of a piping bag fitted with a large star tip and twisting.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment or non-stick mats.
- Place the almond flour, tapioca starch, baking powder, salt, and coconut palm sugar in the bowl of a food processor.
- Pulse until well blended.
- Add the egg, butter and extracts to the dry ingredients and process until a soft dough is formed.
- Scoop the dough into a piping bag fitted with a large star tip like THIS ONE.
- To make the snowflakes, hold the piping bag, tip down, about 1/4″ from the prepared baking sheet and squeeze the dough out, twisting slightly as you squeeze. When the snowflake is about 2″ in diameter, stop squeezing and lift the bag from the sheet. Repeat with remaining dough, spacing cookies 1 1/2″ apart. Sprinkle cookies with sugar sprinkles, if desired.
- Bake in preheated oven for 14-15 minutes, or until golden brown on the ridges.
- Let cool on the baking sheet for 1 minute, then remove and place on a wire rack.
I hope you have a lot of fun making and eating these Paleo spritz cookies.
