In a stand mixer, cream together the butter and Stevia sweetener until pale and fluffy.
Add all dry ingredients (Flours and Powders) into a sifter and sift out any lumps into the butter mix.
Mix on medium until roughly combined, then add the flavourings and milk and mix until it comes together in a dough. Dough should be slightly moist but holding together firmly. If a little dry, add a tad more milk.
Optional Step: Cover and store in fridge for 30 minutes to harden the dough.
Place between 2 sheets of baking paper and roll out until reaching a thickness of 1/2 cm.
Cut into shapes of your choice, then place on lined baking trays.
Cook for 10-12mins until slightly browned on the edges.
Wait 5 mins then transfer to a wire rack for cooling. Cookies will harden once cooled.
Decorate with melted Sugar free Dark Chocolate and a mix of Edible Rose Petals And Raspberry Powder.
