    Low Carb Snickerdoodles - 1.5 carbs/cookie


    I used to make these all the time, and just stumbled back across the recipe! One of the best LC cookies out there.

    Makes about 26

    1/2 cup butter, softened
    1-1/2 cups ground almonds (ground almonds are also known as "Almond Flour")
    1 cup granulated Splenda or other LC sweetner
    1 large egg
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1/4 teaspoon baking soda
    1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
    2 tablespoons granulated Splenda
    1 teaspoon cinnamon

    In a medium bowl, beat butter until creamy. Add half the ground almonds, 1 cup Splenda, egg, vanilla, baking soda and cream of tartar. Beat until well combined. Beat in remaining ground almonds. Cover and chill in bowl for 1 hour. Pre-heat oven to 350 F. In a small bowl, combine the 2 tablespoons Splenda and the cinnamon; mix well. Roll chilled dough into 1-inch balls. Gently roll each ball in the cinnamon-Splenda mixture to coat and place 2 inches apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes until lightly browned at the edges. Carefully remove from pan to cooling rack to cool completely.

    Man, awesome.

    Any of you chefs have any clever ideas to reduce the fat content a bit?

    replace some of the almond meal with something else - fiber powder, carbalose flour, coconut flour, etc.

    You can replace the butter with yogurt or applesauce(yes applesauce) in the recipe. Heck, could even use regular cream cheese or lowfat cream cheese if you want in order to lower the total kcal....
