Paleo Spritz Cookies (AIP)

  • Author: Michelle
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x


These paleo spritz cookies are the ultimate beautiful Christmas cookie! They’re gluten-free, grain-free, and AIP compliant.


Units Scale

Optional icing

  • 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 2 tbsp coconut butter, melted
  • 1/2 tsp matcha powder (add for green icing)
  • 1 tbsp coconut flakes


  1. Preheat the oven t0 350 F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Sift together the arrowroot, coconut flour, gelatin, and baking soda
  3. Fold in the shortening and maple syrup. Mix until a dough forms.
  4. Using a cookie press (like this), set up according to manufacturer’s instructions and fill with the dough. Use a decorative plate of your choice (I used Christmas trees, wreaths, and snowflakes). Place the cookie press plate side down onto the baking sheet and press the lever on the cookie press. Hold it flat onto the baking sheet and allow the cookie to drop down. Pull the cookie press back and repeat. If the cookie dough gets stuck and doesn’t drop down use a butter knife or spoon to carefully pull it back. Repeat for all of the dough, changing out the decorative plates as you go.
  5. Transfer to the preheated oven and bake for 12 minutes or until the cookies are lightly golden brown and cooked through. Carefully transfer to a baking sheet and allow to cool.
  6. Make the optional icing by mixing the coconut oil, coconut butter (and matcha for green icing) and drizzle over the cookies. Add shredded coconut if desired.


You can forgo the cookie press and just make small round cookies if you prefer!
