Low-Carb Sour Cream Drop Cookies

Barbara Heckenlively


These are lovely, soft cookies! On a diet, the hardest thing for me is not being able to have sweets. So I've been re-vamping some of my recipes to make them low-carb with the substitution of almond flour and Truvia for flour and sugar.

How to Make Low-Carb Sour Cream Drop Cookies


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Move rack to top of the oven. Combine first four ingredients and mix well. Then add the next five ingredients and mix. Add flour and rinds last. Mix well. Mixture should be the consistency of very thick oatmeal.
  2. Allow mixture to sit for about 15 minutes to thicken. Stir and drop by tablespoonfuls onto a non-stick cookie sheet. Sprinkle with sliced almonds. A non-stick or teflon baking sheet is very important as the cookies are soft and cake-like and could stick and break apart while removing on any other type of cookie sheet.
  3. Bake for about 9 minutes. Cookies will look very light on the top, almost like they are not set. But if the bottoms are a little brown around the edges, remove from the oven. Let cool for a couple of minutes and then carefully remove from cookie sheet.
  4. I used lemon extract, but you could experiment with vanilla or other flavorings. If you're not dieting, you can use your imagination and try adding one of the following: lemon frosting, coconut, raisins, nuts, cranberries, baking chips, cut up dried apricots .. etc.
