Easy Paleo thumbprint cookies made with cassava flour and leftover cranberry sauce.




  1. Preheat  oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Combine tahini, honey and vanilla in a medium-sized mixing bowl.  Add in the cassava flour, baking soda, apple pie spice and salt.  Mix with a spatula until well combined.
  3. Use a small cookie scoop to scoop the dough, then roll it into a ball (each cookie is about 1 tablespoon in size).  Place the cookie dough on the pan and use your thumb to make an indentation in the middle.
  4. Scoop about 1/2 tsp of cranberry sauce and place it in the center of the cookie, where you made the indentation.
  5. Place the cookies in the oven and bake at 350 degrees F for 10-12 minutes.
  6. Let the cookies cool on the pan for 5 minutes before removing, then transfer them to a wire cooling rack.
