Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup salted butter, softened
  • 2 cups superfine blanched almond flour
  • Pinch of kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2/3 cup powdered erythritol sweetener
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped walnuts
  • 5 tablespoons sugar free strawberry preserves

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Combine the egg, butter, almond flour, salt, baking powder, erythritol and vanilla in a medium bowl.
  3. Mix well with a fork until a dough is formed.
  4. Place the chopped walnuts on a plate.
  5. Form the dough into 1.5 inch balls and roll in the walnuts to coat.
  6. Place on a parchment-lined cookie sheet.
  7. Bake for 8 minutes.
  8. Remove from oven and press a small dent into the center of each cookie.
  9. Place approximately 1 teaspoon of jam in each cookie dent.
  10. Return to the oven and bake an additional 10 minutes.
  11. Remove and transfer to a rack or platter to cool for 30 minutes.
  12. Cookies MUST be fully cool to stay together – until then they will be quite fragile, so handle gently when transferring.
