- 2 cups Ceres Organics White Spelt Flour
- 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 1/2 cup Ceres Organics Maple Syrup
- 1 cup chopped mixed nuts (walnuts, pecans, almonds)
- 1/4 cup mixed seeds (pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 180°C. Line baking sheets with baking paper or reusable silicone baking sheet.
Cream the Butter and Maple Syrup: In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and Ceres Organics Maple Syrup until light and fluffy.
Add Vanilla Extract: Mix in the vanilla extract until well combined.
Combine Dry Ingredients: In a separate bowl, whisk together the Ceres Organics White Spelt Flour, baking powder, and salt.
Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients: Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until a soft dough forms.
Fold in Nuts and Seeds: Gently fold in the chopped mixed nuts and seeds until evenly distributed throughout the dough.
Chill the Dough: Wrap the cookie dough in plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. This helps the cookies hold their shape while baking.
Shape Cookies: Scoop out tablespoon-sized portions of dough and roll them into balls. Place them on the prepared baking sheets, leaving some space between each cookie.
Bake: Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes or until the edges are golden brown. Keep an eye on them to prevent over-baking.
Cool: Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
Enjoy: Once cooled, these Maple Pecan Christmas Cookies are ready to delight your taste buds. Serve with a cup of hot cocoa or share them with loved ones during your festive gatherings.
