    Ingredients
    Instructions
    1. Take the egg out of the fridge. Combine all dry ingredients and mix well.
    2. In a separate bowl combine the coconut oil, lard and honey. Add vanilla and the egg and whisk until smooth. Add the flour mix and combine to form a dough. Let it rest for 10 minutes.
    3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    4. Cut the dough in half and make 2 balls. Roll one of the dough balls out between 2 sheets of parchment paper to a thickness of ⅛ inch. Cut out the cookies using one round medium sized cookie cutter. Make a ball out of the leftover dough and repeat. Place cookies on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. With a small cookie cutter cut out the middle of half of the cookies. You will have to make two batches so while the first baking sheet is in the oven you can cut out the rest of the cookies.
    5. Bake the cookies for 8 – 10 minutes or until slightly golden.
    6. Place on a cooling rack and let cool off.
    7. Add 1 tsp raspberry jam to the cookies without the whole in the middle and then add the other one on top.
    8. Place 1 tsp powdered sugar in a small metal mesh strainer and distribute the powdered sugar evenly onto the cookie. Use more powdered sugar if necessary.
