When the holiday season comes around, you’ll often find me busy in the kitchen baking delightful treats for my kids. This week I had a good time crafting some cookies that are wonderfully rich, buttery, and made with just 5 simple ingredients.
Must try my Keto Shortbread Cookies, a beloved favorite among all my family members. They’re sure to add a touch of joy to your festive celebrations and family gatherings!
With no sugar and no grains, my Keto Shortbread Cookies are absolutely perfect for Keto diet followers, boasting a mere 2 grams of net carbs per cookie. What’s even more impressive is that they require no grains, no oil, and no flour, but you’d never know it when you taste them!
If we talk about the taste, the texture is thick, slightly dense, crumbly, and adorned with a subtle hint of vanilla. They strike the perfect balance of sweetness and richness. So without further ado, let’s dive right into the recipe!
|Granulated Sweetener of Choice, Erythritol
|Butter Softened and Salted
|Large Eggs, stored at room temperature
|Almond Flour Blanched
- Begin by preheating your oven to 180 °C/350 °F. Then, line a spacious baking sheet with parchment paper to ensure your cookies bake perfectly.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the softened butter and granulated sweetener. Use a hand mixer to beat them together until the mixture becomes creamy.
- Add the vanilla extract and eggs one at a time, continuing to beat until the ingredients are well combined and the mixture is smooth.
- Gently fold in the almond flour until the ingredients are fully combined. Ensure a smooth and even texture in the batter.
- Using a large spoon or a cookie scoop, shape the dough into 12–15 balls and arrange them on the prepared baking sheet. Press down on each ball to form a cookie shape, and then use a fork to create a crisscross pattern on the top, marking each cookie with a distinctive touch.
- Place the cookies in the preheated oven and bake for 17–20 minutes, or until they begin to turn golden around the edges. Once done, remove the cookies from the oven and allow them to cool completely before indulging in these delightful Keto Shortbread Cookies.
