Lemon & Rosemary Low Carb Shortbread

Lemon & Rosemary Low Carb Shortbread

Life is what you bake of it. Always choose your ingredients wisely. Works the same with bread.

  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1/3 cup granulated Splenda (or other granulated sweetener)
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated lemon zest
  • 4 teaspoons fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons rosemary
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder

  • How to prepare:
    1. Gather all your ingredients together. Ignore the egg I have pictured, I was initially planning to add it to the dough if I had to, but it turned out I didn’t.
    2. In a large mixing bowl, measure out 2 cups of almond flour, 1/2 tsp. baking powder, and 1/2 tsp. baking soda. Mix these together well.
    3. Add 1/3 cup Splenda, or other granulated sweetener to the mixture.
    4. Zest your lemon with a microplane until you have 1 Tbsp. lemon zest.
    5. Juice half of the lemon to get 4 tsp. of lemon juice.
    6. In the microwave, melt 6 Tbsp. of butter. I took me about 20 seconds to do this. Add vanilla extract to this and mix together.
    7. Transfer your almond flour and sweetener to a small mixing bowl. Put your butter, lemon zest, lemon juice, and chopped rosemary into the now empty large mixing bowl. Add your almond flour back into the wet mixture slowly, stirring as you go.
    8. Keep mixing together the dough until all the almond flour is added.
    9. Wrap the dough tightly in plastic wrap. This will be the shape your cookies will be when they’re finished.
    10. Place the wrapped dough in the freezer for 30 minutes, or until hard.
    11. Preheat your oven to 350F.
    12. Remove your dough from the saran wrap, it should look like a log.
    13. Cut your dough in ~1/2″ increments with a sharp knife. If this knife isn’t sharp, it will make the dough crumble. If the dough is still crumbling, that means it needs more time in the freezer.
    14. Get your cookie sheet out. I use these silicon pads which are nonstick and a huge help when baking.
    15. Grease your baking sheet with SALTED butter. This adds a great hint of flavor to the bottom of the cookies.
    16. Place your cut cookies onto your baking sheet, you should have about 24 cookies depending on the size.
    17. Allow them to cook for 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
    18. Allow the cookies to cool for about 10 minutes. After that, you can remove them from your cookie sheet and enjoy!
