Ingredients

For the Cookies:

Glaze:

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare lined baking sheets with parchment paper or silpat liners
  • In a bowl, beat eggs. Whisk in coconut oil, vanilla extract, lemon extract and sugar until combined.
  • Add in cottage cheese, greek yogurt, baking powder and baking soda. Stir to combine.
  • Slowly add in Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free 1-1 Flour until batter is combined. It will be thick and somewhat chunky due to the cottage cheese.
  • Drop the cookies in 1.5 tablespoon balls on the lined baking sheet (You can gently roll them in circles for prettier presentation)
  • Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes, watching carefully for the last few minutes not to burn them.
  • Allow cookies to cool completely before icing.
  • When ready to ice, whisk together powdered sugar + milk. Gently dunk the tops of the cookies in the icing mixture and sprinkle with sprinkles of choice. Allow icing to harden (about an hour) and store in an airtight container

Notes

Substitutions for this Healthy Anginetti Cookie recipe:
  • Powdered Sugar: If you want to make your own unrefined powdered sugar you can follow this tutorial. I chose not to do this because the holidays only come once a year, and a little bit of refined sugar won't hurt anyone :)
  • Extract: If you want to sub anise extract for the lemon extract in the recipe you totally can! Either extract tastes delicious in the batter, it's all about your taste preference!
  • WW Freestyle Note: Calculated using nonfat yogurt and cottage cheese
Storage:
  • I recommend storing these cookies in an airtight container for up to a week
