Sounds like a pretty simple Snickerdoodle recipe, Barbo, thanks. I haven't had any for ages.

They really melt in your mouth

They are nice and round. A nice big cookie. I think this is one
of the best LC/GF cookies I've ever tried.

Going to freeze them. Jay and I had two each.
Hard to resist when they are this good.

Oh no - I love snickerdoodles! And right at the end of a week of indulgences.

Well maybe for Halloween!

Sounds wonderful, Barbo. I was just looking at a Snicker Doodles recipe in my older cookbook today but decided I will make the "sugar" cookies rather (adapted to be gluten-free). If you say your cookies are so good, I believe you.

Snickerdoodles were one of the very first low carb dessert recipes that I tried during my weight loss many years ago. I compared the Honeyville recipe with the one that I'd made and they're identical except for the number of cookies and theirs calls for slightly more almond flour than Lori's. It's been years and years since I last made them but I remember that my husband and I both liked them very much. Here's the photo that I took of my little cookies:

Wonder if these would work to substitute Jen's gluten free mix for the almond
flour? Would that be an equal amount switch?

Snickerdoodles

There is a picture of them on my board.

I don't know how to post the picture here.
Sometimes Char will do it for me. I am making the
second batch with unblanched almond flour today.
Will post results.

Barbo, my computer upgrade is still not finished as far as installing stuff, but here's how you can do the pictures!

Go to the Advanced reply (instead of Quck Reply), then scroll down a bit and click on Manage Attachments, then the Browse button (you gotta know where on your picture file is located on your computer hard drive or memory card!) and then click on the picture you want and Upload. When it's done just close that window and the pic will show up in your reply.

Those cookies - I think I can smell them from here..........

Thanks for the directions.

Will need to get my other daughter next door to come over and
help .... She calls my computer "ancient" it kinda smarts but
she should know. She didn't have any luck doing it last time,
but she will try your way and see.

The unblanched almond flour still made a good cookie.
My preference is the blanched. BTW I just put in an order
with Honeyville for 25 lbs. of blanched almond flour. I am
sharing it with a neighbor and it really cuts the costs down.
We will bag it up and put in the outside freezer. Yay. Christmas,
Thanksgiving is coming and I will have what I need for baking.
Between Jen's GF Bakemix and our own recipes here on the
board, I will have plenty ammunition for the forth coming holidays.

I made a batch last night and they spread out all over the cookie sheet They were delicious anyway!

I used Jennifer's GF bake mix and reduced by 1/4 cup (due to the coconut flour). Also I did not have granular splenda, so maybe due to those issues it caused the dough to not have enough bulk. If I make them again, I will use more almond flour and refrigerate the dough and cookie sheet after forming the cookies.

I used 12 drops EZ Sweetz (equiv to 1/2 cup sugar) and 1/2 cup Truvia. I could probably use a little less next time. Thanks for the recipe!

Using liquid Splenda instead of granular shouldn't make any difference in the outcome so maybe it was the Truvia that was the problem. I've made them with granular and liquid Splenda and they came out the same both ways. Of course you will need granular for the cinnamon "sugar" coating.

How many carbs per cookie, I wonder? I saw this exact recipe on another site and it said 87 carbs in the entire amount! At 12 cookies that wouldbe over 7 carbs a cookie! If I ate 2 or three I could almost eat a regular cookie (s) or even a snickers bar~!, lol. I hope those (other) carb counts were wrong.

P.S. Wait, the only thing with carbs is the almond meal and figuring in fiber should make these very low carb. I don't understand why that other recipe figured them so high.

I totally understand you Barbo. I have had those instructions laid out to me as well, and I always come back with "I need to know where to find the pictures first" I am THAT computer illiterate I don't even know where my DH has any pictures stored. And I am not that old, at least I hope so. I have little ones still here at home, oldest is only 16. So I don't consider myself ancient at all. But when you don't grow up with this technology it is hard to learn everything. I still remember when the internet was super new. My kids cannot imagine a world with their iphones and ipods Me, I cannot even begin to know how to turn those devices on
