  2. Add vanilla and almond extracts and butter to the mixture. Pulse several times until the mixture sticks together and forms a dough.

For making circle shaped cookies:

  1. Turn dough out onto a piece of parchment. Shape dough into a log shape, about 8 inches long by about 2 inches in diameter. Place dough in an air-tight container or wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate 3-4 hours.

  2. Spray a baking sheet with coconut oil. Place dough on a cutting board. Using a serrated knife, cut the dough crosswise to form 16 equal sized cookies. Place cookies on the prepared cookie sheet, making sure there is at least an inch between them. Continue with baking instructions below.

For using cookie cutters:

  1. Turn dough out onto a piece of parchment. Shape dough into a disk shape about 8 inches in diameter. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 3-4 hours. 

  2. Spray a baking sheet with coconut oil. Place disk of dough onto a piece of parchment. Cover dough with an additional sheet of parchment. Roll dough out to a thickness of about 1/4 inch. Cut into desired shapes using cookie cutters. If the dough sticks to the cookie cutters, spray them with a bit of coconut oil before using them to cut the dough.

  3. Place cookies on the prepared cookie sheet, making sure there is at least and inch between them. Continue with baking instructions below.
