Keto Butter Glaze Cookies

 

Long ago when I first was food blogging, I would modify other people’s recipes or blog about their recipe.  I did one on butter cookies and they were good back then.  BUT, knowing what I know NOW, I knew I could do better.

I was playing around with shortbread cookies which, OOOOMMMMGGGGG, are divine.  Those will be released in The Keto Option: Dessert Edition when it comes out. 

And if you want early access, you can join The Keto Option Membership and get 2 PRE-RELEASED Cookbook Recipes per month!

Anyway, back to keto butter glaze cookies.  I was inspired after creating my divine shortbread cookies to make a slight variation for butter cookies.  I crossed my fingers, got my ingredients back out, did a few additions and subtractions and BOOM! 

Keto Butter Glaze Cookies were born.  

My hubby and son raided them as they were cooling on the counter before I had even taken my pictures!  I told hubby if he eats my treats before I get pictures again he’s banned for life!  Ok, not really. 

They are least left me a few to get some pictures of.

These amazing little desserts will literally melt in your mouth and leave you wanting more!  And at only about 1 carb per cookie – I mean, why not have some more?

 

Kitchen Essentials

Parchment paper– definitely a must for this recipe!  I suppose you could risk it and grease a baking sheet, BUT I would hate for something like coconut oil to soak into the bottom of these cookies and take away from their natural buttery flavor.   

I prefer the unbleached parchment paper like this one.

 Baking sheets  – these baking sheets are what I use and they clean up super easy!

 

Sweetener

I have 3 sweeteners that are my goto sweeteners.  I almost always use a few drops of liquid stevia, but only a few.  If you use too much, I think it gives it an aftertaste. 

Now, with erythritol on its own – I find the same thing.  So what do you do?  You combine the 2 and they basically neutralize the other’s aftertaste!  

I do the same with monkfruit, but I chose erythritol for this these delicious keto butter glaze cookies!

 

Pro Tip

When you eat them, eat them upside down so the butter top touches your tongue first.  YUMMMMMMMMM
