How to make

Please follow the next steps:

  1. 1

    Preheat the oven to 370 degrees Fahrenheit.

  2. 2

    Mix butter with vanilla extract in a large bowl. Add half of the powdered sugar and mix till smooth. Use a hand mixer to beat the mixture till it becomes fluffy.

  3. 3

    Use a blender on low speed or a pastry cutter to chop nuts. You can also do it with a knife, but it will take longer.

  4. 4

    Mix flour, cornstarch, xanthan gum, salt, and chopped nuts in another bowl. Add some coconut flakes to your taste.

  5. 5

    Gradually combine the two mixtures by slowly pouring the dry ingredients into the cream. Constantly stir the mixture. Put it in the fridge for one hour.

  6. 6

    Pour the rest of the sugar powder into a bowl. Shape 1-inch balls from the mixture. Put the balls into the bowl to cover them with a thin layer of sugar powder. Then place them on a baking tray lined with parchment paper.

  7. 7

    Bake for 12 minutes. Let cool. Cover them with more sugar powder with coconut flakes (optionally).
