Sugar Cookie Fail or Sugar Cookie Bites?


If you missed my #nailedit Amish sugar cookie story on Instagram, you need to check it out. (Highlights>Food)

Even though the fail was an epic one, the batter was delicious, so I was determined to make the best of it! (I've become pretty good at doing that with life, ya know?)

After years of unexplained infertility, trauma, abuse, etc... one has to decide to rise above and thrive. There are days I hide intense anger. Very few people have seen the floodgates break with me, but when they do... man. I ugly cry sometimes. But after I give myself some time to actually feel my feelings, I put my attention to something better. And my life has turned out pretty great, despite all the stupid, because of that.

It works with baking, too!

So, while this recipe below will NOT get you delicious and pretty sugar cookies, it will create some incredibly amazing cookie bites... or even donut hole thingys.

We truly can see beauty from ashes as long as we determine to keep moving.

1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup organic butter
2 eggs
1 cup Greek yogurt
3 1/2 cups almond flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla

Cream your sugar and butter. Add eggs and beat well. Add yogurt, dry ingredients, and vanilla. Mix thoroughly. Drop by teaspoon full onto parchment lined cookie sheet. 

Bake 8-12 minutes at 350°F. (180°C)

Once the literal blob has slightly cooled, scrape the "mess" into sections so you can roll into these little bite size balls. Let them set. (If still too soft, bake them a little longer. 

I'm telling ya, they turned out really cute and truly yummy!
