Finally, a Keto diet friendly cookie that actually looks and tastes like a cookie! Super-fine almond flour, erythritol, cream cheese, and butter are the secrets to making these easy, soft, Keto "Sugar" Cookies.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (softened)
  • 3 ounces full fat cream cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups erythritol
  • 1 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups super-fine almond flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Directions

  1. 1Line two baking sheets with silicone baking mats or parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. 2Place the softened butter, cream cheese, and erythritol in a large bowl. Using a hand mixer or stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, cream together the ingredients on medium speed for 1 minute, or until combined.
  3. 3Add the egg and vanilla and continue to beat for 30 seconds to one minute, until light and fluffy.
  4. 4Turn the mixer to low, and add the almond flour, baking soda, and salt to the bowl. Beat the mixture for about 1 minute, until all ingredients are combined.
  5. 5Form the cookie dough into 24 balls, and place on the lined baking sheets.
  6. 6Place the baking trays in the freezer to freeze for at least 10-15 minutes, while the oven preheats.
  7. 7Preheat the oven to 350° F.
  8. 8One the oven is preheated and the cookie dough has frozen for at least 10-15 minutes, transfer the baking sheets directly from the freezer to the oven.
  9. 9Bake the cookies for 12-13 minutes, until they are just slightly golden brown on the edges, and puffy on top. The cookies may seem under-baked, but will firm up once cool.
  10. 10Remove the baking sheets from the oven. Allow the cookies to cool for 5 minutes on the sheets, then transfer them to cooling racks to cool completely.
