It might not yet be the right time for frequent cookie baking, but it is coming. I can smell it at work, where co-workers munch on cookies when we return from lunch. The summer is drawing to an end and tea breaks are soon returning to our schedules. Obviously, shortbread cookies are the tea’s best friends. And while everybody can enjoy them, why should you or I be the only observer in the room? Take this recipe and bake yourself a nice batch of the simplest shortbread cookies. If you can hold yourself back and not eat too many of them, these are perfectly keto friendly.
Nuts about cookies
I love macadamia. It is the best keto choice among nuts if you ask me. Whatsoever, you can freely choose any other type of nuts available. The cookies should still be excellent. Maybe just a little bit less healthy (because of Omega 6) and more carby. Make sure you don’t over-stress about the latter, for desserts are to be enjoyed, not stressed over. That would be even less healthy than a bit of extra Omega 6 fatty acids or carbs in your guts, I guess.
The nuts should stay roughly ground, so do not attempt to turn them into butter. If that happens, you can still make the cookies, but all the charm of biting into the little pieces of nuts will be gone. Just a piece of advice, of course.
Besides, there is no real need to dip the cookies into chocolate. Sometimes some of us simply prefer to enjoy the full vanilla flavor inside, which does get camouflaged by chocolate if you choose to use it.
Go ahead and use the cookies as a base for other recipes. For example, I’m going to use them to make some chocolate coconut balls soon. And I’ve already used them as a cookie crumble in Cream from Heaven recipe.
And you? Do let me know what other uses you find for the cookies!
