I found this recipe around Mother’s Day when I wanted to have a strawberry shortcake recipe that was gluten free – I did not make the holiday spice, I just made the cookies and they were a big hit!

I do not have a Vitamix – I used my Cuisinart. This recipe is quick, simple and yummy!

I made the recipe with butter and then with olive oil – 1:1 substitution. Both were delicious. The olive oil cookies were more light and delicate, but once cooled held their shape.

These cookies are soft and buttery and melt-in-your-mouth delicious. They’re made with almond flour so they are naturally gluten-free.


  • 1 1/4 cups almond flour
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened (vegan, if needed) (I used my Frantoio Franci’s Delicate EVOO)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon Vitamix Holiday Spice Mix, plus a little extra to top the cookies ( I didn’t use this)


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Add the almond flour, 1/4 cup powdered sugar, butter, vanilla, and Vitamix Winter Spice Mix to your Vitamix. Turn on your Vitamix and slowly increase the speed to 3 or 4 and blend the dough. Use the plunger if needed. Blend only until the dough comes together (no more than 30 seconds) then transfer the dough to a bowl.
  3. Make 12 – 1 tablespoon balls then roll them in some powdered sugar. Place them on the prepared baking sheet, sprinkle the tops with a little extra Vitamix Holiday Spice Mix, then bake in your oven for 10 minutes.
