Notes

I used a tablespoon of this leftover cranberry relish from Thanksgiving!

Instructions

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the first 6 ingredients: melted butter, honey, pistachios, cranberries, pears, and vanilla.
  2. Stir in dry ingredients: almond flour, coconut flour, and baking soda until thoroughly combined and a dough forms. 
  3. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. 
  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  5. Either make small 1.5 inch balls and slightly press down onto a greased cookie sheet OR roll the dough out flat between 2 pieces of parchment and use a round cookie cutter to make perfectly round shapes and then place on a greased cookie sheet. 
  6. Bake for 10 - 12 minutes, until slightly browned. Then, let cool on a wire rack. 
  7. Melt the chocolate in a small pan over low heat. Stir in the almondmilk and cranberry sauce.  Then, dip each cookie partway into the ganache. Set on a cooled cookie sheet for chocolate to dry. 
  8. DEVOUR them.
