View Full Version : Almond Cookies

10-23-2007, 04:07 PM
2 sticks butter, softened
16 packets Splenda (equiv. to 1/2 cup sugar)
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 teaspoons almond extract
1 teaspoon cold water
2 cups Carbolite bake mix
1 cup almonds, ground (food processor works well)

Yield: Five dozen (60) cookies.
Carbs for total recipe: 18 grams using Splenda. (Depends upon carbs in sweetener used.)
Carbs per cookie: 1/3 gram.

Using electric mixer on low speed, cream butter and Splenda. Blend in vanilla, almond extract, and cold water. Add ground almonds and Carbolite. Blend until dough is thoroughly mixed. Scrape beaters into bowl. Dough will be dense. Use a 1-teaspooon measuring spoon to scoop up one rounded teaspoon of dough at a time.

Roll dough into a ball between palms of hands. Place ball on ungreased cookie sheet. Press the tines of a fork onto cookie ball to flatten it. Cookies do not expand when baked, so you can place them 1/4-inch apart on the cookie sheet. You'll probably need two cookie sheets. When sheet is full, bake at 350-degrees for 10-12 minutes, until edges of cookies are browned. Do not overbake.

Where do you get carbolite from? And what exactly is in it?

I got mine from the US because I don't think they sell it in Aus...it's a low carb flour alternative for baking etc. You can buy it over the internet.
