Keto Sugar Cookies

Here is Guilt-Free Keto Holiday Cookies Recipe number one.  No Holiday celebration is complete without the traditional sugar cookies. This recipe will give you tender yet sturdy cookies ideal for decorating with the whole family.

Ingredients

Cookies:

2¼ Cups almond flour

2 Tablespoon coconut flour 

¼ teaspoon salt

6 Tablespoon butter softened

½ cup No-calorie sweetener granular

1 Large egg

½ teaspoon vanilla extract

Royal Icing:

½ cup powdered no-calorie sweetener

½ cup powdered xylitol

1 Tablespoon egg white powder

2 to 4 tablespoon water at room temperature

½ teaspoon vanilla extract

Natural food coloring

Instructions

Cookies:

Preheat the oven to 325F.

  1. Prepare your work surface by using a silicone baking mat or parchment paper lightly dusted with coconut flour
  2. Line two or more baking sheets with silicone liners or parchment paper to prevent cookies from sticking
  3. Mix the almond flour, coconut flour, and salt in a medium bowl
  4. In a separate larger bowl, beat the butter and sweetener together until creamy. Beat in the egg and vanilla extract. Beat in the flour mixture until dough comes together
  5. Turn the dough out onto the prepared work surface. Pat into a rough circle and then place parchment paper on top. Roll out to about 1/3-inch thickness
  6. Use your favorite cookie cutters to cut out the shapes. Use a small offset spatula to lift the cookies carefully
  7. Place the cookies on the baking sheets and freeze for 30 minutes. 
  8. Gather the scraps and re-roll the dough to cut more cookies. Repeat this process until you get as many cookies as possible
  9. Bake cookies for 12 to 14 minutes or until they start turning brown around the edges
  10. Remove from the oven and allow cookies to cool completely

Royal Icing:

  1. Whisk together the sweeteners and egg white powder in a large bowl. Add the vanilla extract and the water one tablespoon at a time until you achieve the desired consistency – it should drizzle off the end of the whisk in thick ribbons
  2. Divide the icing into separate and add your desired food coloring in small amounts until you get the desired color
  3. Place icing in small piping bags or into a Ziploc bag with the corner snipped off to pipe outlines. Allow the outlines to dry at least 10-20 minutes before filling in
  4. Fill in the outlines by piping frosting in a back and forth motion. Use a toothpick to spread the icing and fill the gaps
  5. Allow the frosting to dry completely
  6. Enjoy!
