  • 2 1/2 cups Almond Flour
  • 6 tablespoons softened butter
  • 1/2 cup powdered stevia or sweetener of your choice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Use a mixer and whip the butter and sugar substitute together until it becomes light and fluffy. This step is important.
  • Now add the vanilla and mix it together.
  • Slowly add 1 cup of almond flour at a time combining it together as you go.
  • When you are done mixing it the dough will look crumbly but when you pick it up and squeeze it together with your hands it will stick together nicely.
  • Roll out the dough between two sheets of parchment paper to avoid sticking. I like to roll them out to about 1/3 inch thick. You can make them as thin as you want them. This dough recipe will not flatten when it cooks. It will hold it's shape.
  • Bake these cookies for about 12 minutes on the top rack. If you do roll the cookies thinner you will want to bake them at a shorter timeframe. They may only take between 8 and 10 minutes if they are really thin. I personally prefer these cookies a bit thicker. They are delicate cookies and easier to handle when they are thicker.
  • Allow these cookies to completely cool before you pick them up. They will harden up after they cool down.
