Real Deal Chocolate Chip Cookies
                                                                                    from Against All Grain

1/4 cup palm shortening or grassfed butter
1/4 cup coconut palm sugar
2 tablespoons honey
1 large egg, room temperature
2 teaspoons vanilla
1½ cups blanched almond flour
2 tablespoons coconut flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon sea salt
¼ cup dark chocolate pieces (just chop up a dark chocolate bar)
¼ cup enjoy life chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a food processor, cream the palm shortening, coconut sugar, honey, egg, and vanilla for about 15 seconds until smooth and fluffy.
Add the almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda and sea salt and mix again until combined, about 30 seconds. Scrape down the sides of the bowl if needed in order to incorporate all of the flour. Pulse once or twice more.
Stir in the chocolate chips by hand.
Place golf-ball sized balls of dough on a cookie sheet lined with parchment or a SilPat. Using another sheet of parchment on top of the dough, flatten them slightly with the palm or your hand or a spatula. The cookies don’t spread much so create the size and thickness you want prior to baking them.
Bake for 9-12 minutes, until slightly golden around the edges.
*These keep best in an air-tight container in the fridge.

*Our additions: 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice and vanilla cream filling.

                                                                  Cream Filling Recipe
1/2 cup palm shortening
2-3 tablespoons Agave {or to taste}
1 teaspoon pure organic vanilla extract

Place the palm shortening and Agave in a bowl. Using a mixer, blend together. Add the vanilla extract and beat until smooth and light. Use 1 tablespoon full per each sandwich cookie.

So far this season, these are our favorite recipe. But we have a lot more pumpkin recipes to try too. Get busy and do some pumpkin baking!
