Yield 20 -25 cookies


  • 1 cup flour (white, spelt, or Bob's gf work)
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped walnuts, almonds, or pecans
  • 1/2 cup butter or coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar, unrefined if desired
  • 2 tsp lemon juice, plus 1 tsp zest (don’t omit)
  • if using coconut oil, add 1/8 tsp salt
  • optional additional powdered sugar for rolling


  • *For a keto version, just add lemon zest to this Keto Cookies recipe and roll into balls.
    Preheat the oven to 325 F. Beat butter or oil with the powdered sugar in a medium bowl or stand mixer. Stir in all remaining ingredients to form a dough. Roll into balls, place on a cookie sheet, and bake 17 minutes. The cookies will still be underdone, so do not touch them for 10 minutes as they cool and firm up. If desired, roll in additional powdered sugar.
