Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies! (gluten,grain,egg free with dairy free and Keto directions!)

All things red velvet seem to be everywhere this time of year, and I am certainly not complaining!  I love the look of anything red velvet on a holiday dessert table, the deep ruby red just looks so seasonal and decadant!  So since I instantly fell in love with the chocolate crinkle cookies, I thought that the only way to possibly one up them is to transform them into red velvet crinkle cookies, so that is exactly what we did.  With just a few simple tweaks we turned the recipe into, what I think will be a new holiday tradition in my house to leave out alongside some milk for Santa Clause!

Yield: 16 cookies

Ingredients

·      2 cups blanched almond flour (288g)

·      3/4 cup + 2 tbsp granulated organic cane sugar, coconut sugar or granulated xylitol (140g)

·      1 tbsp cocoa powder

·      1 tsp baking powder

·      1/4 tsp sea salt

·      4 1/2 tbsp room temperature butter, palm shortening or coconut oil (63g)

·      1 tbsp vanilla extract

·      2 tbsp + 1 tsp red food coloring

·      1/4 cup powdered sugar, for crinkle coating

Instructions

1.    Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

2.    In a large bowl for a stand mixer mix together all of the ingredients except the powdered sugar, on medium to medium-high speed until well combined and a large ball of dough forms.

3.    Scoop the prepared dough, about 2 tbsp worth or with a small cookie scoop, roll between hands to form a ball, roll to coat well in the powdered sugar and place on cookie sheet. Using the pads of your fingers carefully flatten to about 1/4 inch thickness. Repeat process with remaining dough.

4.    Place into the oven and bake for 12 minutes. Allow to cool completely before removing from cookie sheet.
