instructions:

For the Cookies
  1. Combine flours, baking soda, xanthan gum, salt, and spices in large bowl. Beat orange zest, butter, oil, sweetener, and Sukrin Gold with electric mixer for 3 minutes.
  2. Beat in egg and syrup for another couple minutes. Beat in dry mixture in three batches, beating in between each. Place dough in plastic wrap and flatten slightly into a fat disc shape. Freeze for 1 hour or refrigerate for 3 hours.
  3. Heat oven to 350. Roll out dough in between two layers of parchment so that it is about 1/4 inch thick. Use cookie cutters to cut shapes. Bake on parchment lined baking sheets. Bake for 6-10 minutes or until lightly browned.
For the Royal Icing
  1. Beat whites and extract with electric mixer until it is frothy. Slowly add in confectioner erythritol a 1/4 cup at a time. Add in almond milk to make it a good piping consistency. Place frosting in sandwich bag or piping bag, snip a tiny corner off the tip, and pipe!
