These festive cookies are naturally gluten free and can easily be made vegan - and they also happen to be delicious! Classic holiday spices add warmth and depth of flavor to creamy almond butter, while fresh orange zest adds a touch of brightness. These are the perfect compliment to any holiday cookie spread!


1 1/4 cups blanched almond flour

1/4 cup plus 2-3 tbsp powdered sugar, sifted

3 tbsp Spread The Love Unsalted® Almond Butter

3 tbsp butter or vegan butter substitute

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp ground ginger

1/4 tsp cardamom

1/4 tsp cloves

1/4 tsp freshly grated nutmeg

1/4 tsp salt

Zest of one small orange


1. Preheat the oven to 350° F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2. In a large mixing bowl, combine almond flour, 1/4 cup powdered sugar, all the spices, salt, and orange zest.

3. Melt the butter and almond butter together in the microwave or in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir until well combined and smooth. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.

4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, and stir until a dough forms. It will be on the dry side - you may need to use your hands to get it to fully form.

5. Using a 1 tbsp measure, create 12 balls of dough, and roll them in the remaining powdered sugar. Place them on the prepared baking sheet, and bake for 10 minutes. Sprinkle with a bit more powdered sugar just before serving, if desired.


*note: if preferred, the cinnamon, ground ginger, cardamom, cloves, and nutmeg may be swapped out for 2 1/4 tsp of your favorite pumpkin pie spice mix.
