Ingredients:
  • 2 pieces prosciutto
  • 1 1/2 cups coconut flakes
  • 8 dried apricots
  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 Gelatin Egg
  • 1/2 cup coconut butter
  • Instructions:
    1. Preheat oven to 350F.
    2. Caramelize the prosciutto by sauteeing the prosciutto with the maple syrup in a pan over medium heat for 2-4 minutes. Set aside and allow to cool.
    3. Meanwhile, in a food processor, process the coconut, apricots, coconut oil, salt and gelatin egg until combined.
    4. Crumble the prosciutto by hand and mix into the rest of the cookie dough. Divide the dough into 6 equal sized balls.
    5. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Spread out the dough balls and press them down into even sized discs.
    6. Bake for 12-14 minutes, until edges are golden brown. Note: Cookies will firm up upon cooling, so try not to overbake. Allow the cookies to cook before frosting.
    7. Once the cookies have cooled, melt the coconut butter in a microwave safe bowl for 45seconds-1 minute. Dip each cookies in the coconut butter, allow it to set, and then dip again for a second layer if desired. Allow coconut butter to cool before eating.
