Turmeric Cookies


Serves: 3-4 people
Prep Time: 30 min
Difficulty: Intermediate 
Cooking: 7 hours


  • Makes 30 – 34 cookies
  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp fennel seeds
  • 2 tsp flax seeds
  • 2 tsp poppy seeds
  • 1/4 tsp green cardamom seeds, freshly ground
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper, freshly ground
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp fennel seeds


  1. 1Mix first 11 ingredients in large bowl until well mixed
  2. 2Whisk egg lightly before folding into dry ingredients. Stir until completely combined. Bring dough into ball, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate 30 minutes.
  3. 3Use a generous teaspoon of dough for each cookie. These cookies will spread out about 2″ so allow space on the cookie sheet. Bake in 350 degree oven for 10 minutes.

Notes: These make a wonderful “cracker” cookie. I haven’t tried it yet but plan to make this dough again without the sugar adding a savory spice.
