One of my favorite cookies! These bite-size treats are low in carbs, so you can have several without feeling guilty. These are not suitable until you are well into Phase 2 Atkins OWL. They can be fit into a Keto plan and Primal followers can enjoy them as well.
1 recipe my Almond Butter Cookies dough
Lemon zest from 2 lemons
Juice of 1 lemon
DIRECTIONS: Mix up the Almond Butter Cookie recipe per that recipe’s instructions. Add in the lemon zest and juice and stir well. I decided to make molded cookies with some silicone molds with 1¼” slots. Molds help me keep my cookies uniform in size. But you can just dip up about 1″ ball of dough and shape in a ball and place on non-stick sheet pans. Press the balls of dough slightly to make them a bit flatter (or to fill your mold to the edges of the slots). Pop into your preheated 350º oven for about 7-8 minutes or until lightly browned. These are delicate while hot, so cool them completely before removing from molds or your sheet pan. The browner you get them the chewier they are when completely cooled.
