Keto Halloween Cookies recipe

Keto Halloween Cookies

Halloween is a tricky, sneaky little bastard. It comes around every year so quickly, I can’t seem to follow. Trick or treat? I’ll go for the latter! Anyhow, the truth is, I’ve had no time to come up with an entirely fresh treat. So I am giving out the recipe that is one year old.

Last year, only the new e-list subscribers had the privilege to access this recipe. But now you can all take a look and try the Halloween cookies out! These are actually a kind of shortbread cookies, enhanced with a creative Halloween moment. They are, naturally, too tasty for me to not prepare them again this year.

What’s up with the vivid colors? Well, I don’t like artificial stuff that one can buy in almost every grocery store: The baking food colors, made of unknown things and (usually) sugar. That is why I use turmeric powder, mixed with IMO syrup for the orange heads, and pistachio extract (if I have any; it’s a rarity), combined with IMO syrup for the stems. When the cookies are cooled, just brush the colored IMO syrupย on the surface of each cookie.

Are all the ingredients necessary? This question usually comes up when people don’t have or don’t want to use IMO syrup or xanthan gum. With this recipe, I’d say, yes, use the xanthan gum and the IMO syrup if you don’t want to have a tough time keeping the dough together when it’s being rolled out and cut into the cute little angry-looking pumpkin heads. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Instructions
Cookies
  1. Preheat the oven to 320ยฐF (160ยฐC) and prepare a baking sheet.
  2. Mix all the dry ingredients. Add melted butter, combined with IMO syrup.

    Mix with your hands until you get a firm dough. Let it sit in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
  3. Roll the dough into 1/8-inch thick layers. Help yourself with some wrapping kitchen foil so the dough doesnโ€™t stick. Cut out 26 circles with a 2-inch round cutter. Place them on the cookie sheet. Using a sharp knife, carve Halloween faces int 13 circles. Make pumpkin stems out of the spare dough and press them on the circles. Bake for 10 minutes. Watch closely to prevent burning. Wait for the cookies to cool down and firm up.

Chocolate cream filling
  1. While the cookies are cooling, prepare the filling. On medium heat, melt the chocolate and mix it well with cream cheese. Put a teaspoon of the filling on each of the 13 circles and press the face on top. Do this just before serving, as filled cookies get tender in time.
