Equipment

  • Medium sized bowl
  • Spatula
  • Patchment paper
  • Saran wrap (optional)
  • Baking tray
  • Rolling pin
  • Cooling rack -optional

Ingredients

  • 2.5 cups blanched almond flour
  • ½ cup confectioners erythritol
  • cup salted butter softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Line a baking tray with parchment paper and preheat your oven to 350 F (approximately 180 degrees C). Allow the butter to soften for at least 30 minutes on your kitchen counter before and line a baking tray or cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, whisk the softened butter, vanilla, and sweetener until properly combined (it should be light and fluffy). Add the almond flour a little at a time, until you get a firm dough.
  • Use an ice cream or a cookie scoop to scoop out dough and place these on the baking tray. Next, flatten each dough ball to about 1.5 " (4cm) thick. As an alternative method, divide the dough into fist-sized balls and place these between two parchment papers or saran wrap, then roll out. Roll until the dough is about 1.5" or 4 cm thick and use your cookie cutter to cut out circular or rectangular shapes. You can then use a spatula to transfer the cut cookies to a baking tray or cookie sheet.
  • Bake the cookies for 10 minutes (the edges should have a nice golden colour). Allow them to cool completely before removing them from the baking pan to a plate or a cooling rack. That is how simple it is to bake low-carb shortbread cookies!

Notes

  • Almond flour burns very quickly. I would advise you to keep an eye on the cookies after the 5-minute mark. Use the light in your oven to check whether they have attained a nice golden colour.
  • Carb count does not include sugar alcohols and fibre since these do not have an impact on blood sugar on most people.
