If you want a different shaped almond flour cookie to be served for a special event or for snacks at home, you can find numerous cookie cutters in supermarkets baking suppliers or online. They come on all shapes and sizes from the simple circle to animal shapes and alot more.
Making bar cookies is the ideal choice if you are going to make a lot of them or if you have no cookie cutter to hand. You simply make the almond flour cookie mix, roll it onto long tubes around 6 inches thick and as long as your baking tray allows then bake and slice, and they are ready to serve without using too much time or effort. I love to keep a zip lock bag of theses in the cupboard as that’s for the children
