Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar style sweetener
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup Pumpkin Spice Keto Chow
  • 1 Tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 Tbsp ground ginger
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3-4 drops brown food coloring optional

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Whip the butter, then blend in the sweetener, then the egg and vanilla extract.
  • When that is fully combined, add the Keto Chow, coconut flour, spices and baking powder. Add the brown food coloring and mix in if using.
  • Mix well and roll into a slightly flattened disc. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate for approximately 20 minutes.
  • When the dough feels firm to the touch remove from the fridge and place on a clean counter.ย 
  • Use a rolling pin to roll the dough out to approximately 1/4 inch thickness.
  • Cut with cookie cutters and arrange on a lined cookie sheet. Reroll the dough and cut more cookies.
  • Bake at 325 degrees for 10-12 minutes, just until cookies are golden around the edges and firm on the bottom.
  • Remove to a cooling rack and cool completely before decorating.

Notes

Yield: Approximately 15 cookies depending on the size of cutters you use.ย
