Cookies

Cookies are my year round favorite. They taste good, they are easily portioned and most are easy to make. Cookies seem to be a holiday staple so I thought I would put a bunch of recipes together in one place for easy holiday baking and cookie swaps.

  • I use a cookie scoop for all my cookies, easiest way to figure out the macros and portions.
  • I line all my pans with parchment paper (Not Wax Paper).
  • I use Pyure (my favorite sweetener) for all of them no matter what they call for, I do use Swerve Brown when brown sugar is called for.
  • The right sweetener makes all the difference when you are baking, if you don’t like your sweetener, you won’t like your cookies.
  • I usually start with half the sweetener and taste it, then add more until it’s good. Different sweeteners have different sweetness levels.
  • Don’t touch until cooled, and don’t package until they are 100% cooled. They get “wet” if there is any heat left in them.

Butter Pecan Cookies – These are like the store bought Pecan Sandies, you could easily swap out the pecans for something else, this is a great shortbread cookie base.

Peanut Butter Cookies – Probable the one I make most often, definitely a favorite with my family and friends.

GORP Cookies – These have a little bit of everything, one of my favorites…add or eliminate the ingredients you choose.

Ginger Snap Cookies – I love these, they scream Christmas to me, but I make them all year.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bacon Cookies – Good as is and easily made without the bacon if you want. I have done both.

Chocolate Chip Cookies – Not a perfect tollhouse cookie, but still quite tasty.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites –  Technically a fat bomb, but so good, I had to add it here.

Amaretti Cookies – I like these better than the original non-keto ones.

Cinnamon Butter Cookies – A very soft cookie, but great. (I suggest almond flour, not almond meal)

Cream Cheese Cookies – Simple and easy to flavor with add ins or extracts. I skip the wrapping and chilling and just use a cookie scoop on these.

Meringue Cookies – I love these things, use extract to flavor them.

No Bake Cookies – Similar to a haystack cookie, but with coconut.

Pumpkin Snickerdoodle – A very soft cookies, cool completely before touching or packaging.

Snickerdoodle – Another one of my favorites.

Sugar Cookies – I haven’t made these yet, but they have great reviews
