1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened

1 cup granulated monkfruit sweetener

1 large egg

1/2 cup sour cream

1 tsp vanilla extract

VANILLA FILLING

2 ounces cream cheese, softened

1 tablespoon butter

2 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 cups confectioners monkfruit sweetener (add 1/2 cup at a time to get your desired consistency and sweetness, you may use slightly more or less depending on your preference)

1-2 tablespoons almond milk or heavy cream (use only as needed to thin your frosting to your preference)

INSTRUCTIONS

1 In a large mixing bowl whisk together almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt, set aside.

2 In the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment cream together butter and sugar until blended. Mix in the egg, sour cream, and vanilla extract.

3 With mixer set on low speed slowly add in flour mixture and mix until combined.

4 Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and shape each into a round disk. Chill for a minimum of 2 hours, preferably overnight.

5 When ready to bake preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Scoop the sugar cookies out using a 1 inch cookie scoop and place on a silicone lined baking sheet.

6 Bake for 4 minutes and remove the pan from the oven. CAREFULLY drop the pan onto your countertop from the height of about 4 inches. Repeat this step 4-5 times. By dropping the pan the cookies will spread and thin to create a perfectly chewy cookie.

7 Place the cookies back in the oven and bake an additional 5-6 minutes. Remove from the oven when the center is still slightly undercooked, it will finish baking as it cools.

8 Allow the cookies to cool 10 minutes on the baking sheet and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

9 To make the frosting: Combine the cream cheese, butter, vanilla, peppermint extract and 1/2 cup of the powdered sugar to a mixing bowl and beat with an electric mixer. Add 1/2 cup of the sweetener at a time until it reaches your desired consistancy and sweetness. Use 1-2 tablespoons liquid to thin as needed.

10 Pipe or spread the frosting onto the bottom of one completely cool cookie and top with another cookie
