  1. Oh thank you sweetie…for information on sweeteners .. I now know why my cookies stayed so soft and chocolate mint chip cookies I used the classic lakanto came out soft but firm and when I dropped the cookie sheet on the counter 4 times they cracked and crinkled … they are the perfect texture but the cooling is too off putting ugg bocca sweet is an arm and a leg and I bake couple times a week for hubby 😮

  2. I am so thankful that you share your recipes, even having your own bakery. That is remarkable! I have the Mexican Wedding Cake recipe in the fridge. I didn't have a powdered blend in stock, so that will be coming Wed. Don't think I will make it til then without trying them with straight erythritol!

    I used my Pampered Chef scoop. I don't know what the official measurement is, but turns out it is a little bit smaller than a TBSP. When I poured from the scoop into the tbsp measuring spoon, it came ALMOST to the rim, no meniscus. I made 67 cookies! So, not sure how long to bake them for. 6 minutes-ish?

    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving! Wasn't sure exactly when you are do, but in comments, sounds like closer to Christmas. I had my son the day before Thanksgiving 22 years ago. Blessings to your family!

  3. OMG!! It’s insane when I heard you NEVER heard a Mexican wedding cookie…1 off My all time favys… k, Question… what would be a Good base for like 5 dozen cookies??? One I could divide up & make 4-5 different types?? I was thinking of your fluffy shortbread…🤔 OHH BTW… Love your channel❤ Thanks, I’ve learned So Many new recipes!!🎉

  4. These look yummy. I enjoy the way you teach us about products. Can't wait to hear your when your son is born.
    0These use to be a cookie called lemon coolers. They were one of my favorite cookies. Of course they were loaded with sugar. They no longer make them and I have not found a good replacement recipe, keto or otherwise. Please] put them on your future cookie recipes list.

  5. I can report back that egg white protein powder is not a good sub for Whey Protein. My wife is dairy free, so I tried that, and the result was a rubbery mess, not melt-in-mouth. They also didn't seem to bake right, which may have been part of the problem.

  6. I had a lot of Pecans to get rid of before they got to old so I had your Pecan Pralines in Keto Caramel Ice Cream recipe on my wish list so I doubled up on the Caramelized Pecans and made some Pecan Candies with the rest of what I had left over. I sweetened the ice cream a little more and all I have to say is OMFG!!! Not just 110% better than any ice cream I've made but the best ice cream I have tasted in my life. OMFG I can't believe that I made it. WoW WoW Wow. I'm going to say something on your video that I got the instruction from but WoW I just had to tell you this. OMFG I still can't believe it.
