Now I will mention – they do have a SLIGHT almondy taste to them. That’s why I added a tbsp of vanilla.. to combat any major tastes left from the flour.
One tip I will say is that when you are mixing the dough, make sure you mix it extremely well. Ensure that when you have a firm dough, it’s not gritty. It should be smooth.
For this recipe, I altered one from King Arthur flour to make them low carb. Here is the original recipe.

- With a hand mixer, whip up your butter until its nice and smooth.. add in your sugar substitute, salt and vanilla - mix thoroughly.
- Slowly whip while adding in the almond flour. It will eventually form a nice big lump of dough.
- Roll out the dough and cut into shapes.. bake at 350 until golden brown.. roughly 5-10 minutes. keep an eye on it otherwise they burn easily.
- Take out and let them cool. They will firm up as they cool.
