Ingredients

Add to Grocery List

  • ·
    6 tbsp butter
  • ·
    2 cups almond flour
  • ·
    1/3 cup granulated sweetener (splenda, ideal, swerve, etc.)
  • ·
    1 tsp freshly grated lemon zest

How to Make Ultra Low Carb Lemon Almond Shortbread Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. Melt the butter in the microwave or a small saucepan. Add the almond flour, sweetener, and lemon zest, stirring until fully combined.
  2. To make the cookies:
  3. Form dough (it will be crumbly, this is normal) into a cylinder and wrap tightly with plastic wrap to compress. Chill in freezer for 30 minutes or until firm, or in the refrigerator for 2 hours. With a sharp knife, slice into 1/2 inch thick cookies (if they crumble apart your dough isn’t cold enough). Bake in a preheated oven @ 350 degrees (F) on a greased or parchment lined cookie sheet for 15 minutes, or until firm and golden brown. Allow to cool before removing.
  4. To make a tart or pie crust:
  5. No need to pre-chill, just press dough into tart or pie tins. Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees (F) for 15 mins until firm and golden brown.
