Thanks for the suggestions. I'm hoping to find something a little more unique than snickerdoodles, but that would be a good suggestion for our family Christmas cookies. The lemon butter cookies sound good, too.

I have her recipe, but haven't made them yet. They do look awesome! We were each given little food gift bags to bag up our cookies for each participant. Do you think these would get messed up in a bag?

I don't think that we are allowed to post the url. But, if you go to her blog (All Day I Dream About Food) and put Chocolate Raspberry Thumbprint in the search box, you will get the recipe.

Here are the pics .

cream cheeese cookies 043.jpg



cream cheeese cookies 042.jpg

I use to love these . They are a little involved. I use to change flavors using extracts and syrups. The cookie part was crispier . After I took the picture I put chocolate on top. DH says they are great except the cookie part. He remembers them crispier.

Does anybody remember the Philadelphia cream cheese cookies? These are my rendition of them.

Yes, do this. You will be pleasantly surprised at the amazing list she has of, not only her's but many other contributors to the Christmas cookie recipes. Others who contribute to this site.

No. The chocolate drizzle sets up nicely. It should do well.

Comfy belly has a great breakfast cookie. I sub the honey for splenda or other artificial sweetener combos. They are reallly good. Also, biscotti can be made with almond flour and they are pretty good dipped in dark chocolate. I used to have the recipe but my computer broke so I don't have it anymore...

Good to know! I think I'll give these a go this weekend. I don't do fruit or even sugar-free jam, but I'm thinking about trying the recipe as is (for others to eat) and maybe coming up with some kind of thickened almond butter filling. I just bought some confectioners swerve. Maybe a little of that added to almond butter would make it kind of like an almond reeses?

I'll look for that cookie.
I've been wanting to try a lowcarb biscotti, but just haven't done it yet. I've got some recipes saved, so I'll check out what I've got.

Another cookie I'm going to try this weekend is Red Velvet Cheesecake Swirl Brownies form 24/7 Low carb diner. My Red Velvet emulsion came yesterday. I'm hoping that this will be a good enough dessert to have on Christmas day.
Has anyone given these a try yet?

There was a recipe for a jelly on the glucomannon thread that used DaVinci syrup. You may want to search for that.

Thank you!! I don't have any glucommanan, so will probably have to hold off on this until I can order some. I have raspberry da vini syrup.

So sorry I thought I put the recipe on here.

The cookie part. I used a recipe the other day and now I know it was not the one I used before.

Originally posted by shawneesioux:

I don't have Keto, so I have used Brown Sugar Twin and cinnamon "dusting" on ones made with Maple extract. I also add in a pinch of salt to the cookie dough.
Shawnee


Old Fashioned "Sugar" Cookies

Ingredients:
1 1/4 cups almond flour
1 cup Splenda ( I used a combo of sweetners )
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon butter flavored extract
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup butter, softened
Keto Sweet granulated sweetener [optional]

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Mix almond flour with Splenda, sifting until well mixed. In a separate bowl, lightly beat egg and then mix well with extracts and softened butter. Add to dry ingredients and mix really well.

Then spread on a cookie sheet with sides and cut with a pizza cutter in rectangles then baked for a 10 minutes.Take out and let cool while making cheesecake.

I made a no bake cheesecake in a bowl.

Cheesecake filling
12 0z. cream cheese softened
2 T. powdered Xylitol
1/2 c. vanilla da vinci ( i've used different flavors here)
1 pack knox gelitin
dash of stevia
1/2 c heavy or whipping cream

Cream the cream cheese in a bowl with stevia and powdered Xylitol then set aside. Whip up heavy cream and set aside.
In a small saucepan combine the syrup and sprinkle the gelatin on top , let sit for 5 minutes. Let turn a stove on low to dissolved the gelitin.
Thentake the cream cheese bowl and pour in the da vinci's and whip until light and fluffy. Put in fridge for about 30 minutes then fold in ( already whipped ) whipping cream.Put this mixture in a piping bag or a plastic bag with the corner cut off.

Pipe onto cookie ( a nice amount) and then put lc jam on top.

I make my own jam . You could use store bought.

I tasted the cookie and it was good. But I know that wasn't the cookie recipe I used. My cookie part was crispy. My memory is not very good.
Everbody loved these. I hope I didn't forget anything.

I was also looking at the all day I dream of food website and those cookies look great!

These would be a great addition to anybody's Christmas cookie tray. I'm very pleased with how they came out. The top crust was a bit tricky, but I managed to pull it off with this soft dough after chilling it. http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/lo...h-cookies.html

Does this sound like the recipe that you saw?
My cookie cooking trials yesterday were a flop.

Most grocery stores have Deb El Just Whites in the baking section.

Thanks, Terry! I found the egg whites in the second store, but I had to go to five stores yesterday to find the guar gum. I'm all set for my cookie baking trials this morning!

I just finished making the Red Velvet Cheesecake Swirl Brownie and the Chocolate Raspberry Thumbprints.

The brownies are excellent. Dd said "they don't taste fake", and that is a compliment. I will probably make these for my Christmas dinner (and I'll even share them).

The thumbprints are also quite good. They are definitely in the running for the cookie exchange. I made half with sugar-free raspberry jam and half with a concoction of almond butter and powdered Swerve.

I have 3 more recipes to try today, but I promised dd I'd help her study for a test, so I may not get to all 3.

I just took the Chocolate Pecan Coconut Cookie Bars out of the oven. These are excellent! I subbed DaVinci caramel syrup for the molasses and the crust by itself tastes wonderful. I don't have a 9x11 pan, so I started out in a 9x13 pan and didn't spread the crust to the farthest edge. After baking the crust, I was worried that the filling and topping would run over into the crustless part of the pan, so I put the cooked crust into a 9x9 pan. I think that there was too much topping for the rest of the cookies because it is just very crumbly. Or, maybe that's just because I was impatient and didn't let the bars cool enough before removing from the pan. Anyway, these really are great, but might be too crumbly for a cookie exchange.

I just finished making Holiday Sugar Cookie Bars from All Day I Dream About Food and these are excellent. I only made half a recipe to try them, but next time will make a full batch. I can't use oat flour, so I subbed 1 tablespoon (2 tablespoons for full recipe) of coconut flour. One of the things I love about this recipe is that it is a bar cookie - much quicker and easier to make.

I made Carolyn's chocolate peppermint cookies today and they were really good. I didn't turn them into sandwich cookies though because I liked them the way they were. I am goinng to try to use that recipe to create gingersnaps because they did come out pretty crisp.
