Keto Lemon Shortbread Cookies

Ingredients

  • 2 cups superfine blanched almond flour
  • 1/3 cup granulated sweetener (Swerve & Lakanto are my favorites)
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated lemon zest

Instructions

To make the dough:

  1. Melt the butter in the microwave or a small saucepan.
  2. Add the almond flour, sweetener, and lemon zest, stirring until fully combined.



To make cookies:

  1. Gather dough into a ball (it will be crumbly at first, this is normal)
  2. Chill in freezer for 30 minutes or until firm, or in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
  3. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  4. With a sharp knife, slice into 1/2 inch thick cookies (if they crumble apart your dough isn’t cold enough) and place on a parchment-lined cookie sheet.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes, or until firm and golden brown.
  6. Allow to cool before removing.

To make a tart or pie crust:

  1. No need to pre-chill, just press dough into tart or pie tins.
  2. Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees (F) for 15 mins, or until firm and golden brown.
