I have a sweet tooth today and Carol just posted a recipe on Facebook that looks GOOD.
Almond Cookies
Ingredients:
2 cups almond flour
1/2 cup Splenda
1 stick (1/2 cup) softened butter
1/2 teaspoon salt (if using salted butter, omit salt here)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon almond extract

Preheat oven to 300ーF.

Combine all ingredients. Form dough in to walnut sized balls and place onto greased cookie sheet. Bake for 5 minutes. Press down lightly with fork, then continue to bake for another 15 minutes. Let cool.

30 carbs in entire batch. Divide by number of cookies for carbs per cookie.
and a couple of cookies, nice.

Oh, that looks good. I need more almond flour before I do anything like that. Also, almond extract. Think I need to start a list. Do you use parchment paper on your cookie sheet?

Marylin, those almond cookies are to die for. I use a Silpad on my cookie sheet.

You can get them in kitchen stores etc.

If they're too good, I'll likely eat the whole batch and there goes my whole day's carb allowance. Razz

My problem with those cookies is portion control. I tell myself that I will eat just 2 of them and the first thing I know they are all gone too. Very addictive.

They are so buttery and light. Nobody can eat just one or two. LOL

Gigi, I've seen that Silpad online. I had Dh buy a big box of parchment paper for me a while back, so I'm set for a while. I had him buy the parchment paper so I'd make myself some cheese chips in the hope I'd eat those instead of wanting Bugles. Has anyone had any experience making cheese chips?

I keep parchment paper around but I love my Silpat. Had to buy a new one because my old one looked like ********* and it was starting to stick a bit.
