I actually created this low carb linzer cookie bar recipe months ago, but there was never a good time to share it before now! Since I’m posting low carb cookie recipes every day this week, I thought this would be the perfect time to roll it out (see what I did there?) ?
Actually there is no rolling at all in this incredibly easy and delicious low carb cookie recipe, which is one of the things I love about it! I’m a huge fan of Linzer cookies – they taste amazing and they are beautiful works of art usually.
Buuuuuuuut they are a LOT of work to make! ⏳???
Since I’m not about spending hours perfecting a gorgeous keto cookie that’s only going to get eaten in about 10 seconds time, I wanted all of the yummy linzer cookie flavor and texture in a low carb, gluten free, and SOOPER EASY format.
All you need to do is mix up the low carb shortbread crust recipe, press 2/3 of it into your pan, spread the sugar free raspberry jam mixture over it and crumble the remaining shortbread over the top. Bake and nom.
It’s really that simple.
These low carb cookies freeze really well, which is perfect if you want to make a bunch to have on hand any time you feel the need for a keto friendly treat at a moment’s notice! ???
