KETO CHRISTMAS TREE COOKIES
Makes 20

Keto Sugar Cookies
1 3/4 cup blanched super fine almond flour
1/3 cup coconut flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
2/3 cup powdered sugar-free sweetener
1 egg
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon almond extract (optional)

Keto Buttercream Frosting
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar-free sweetener
1-3 tablespoons nut milk or heavy cream, optional
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
pinch of salt
10-12 drops green food coloring
4-6 drops yellow food coloring

1️⃣ Sift together almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt into a small bowl. Discard any coarse bits left behind. Set aside.
2️⃣ In large bowl, cream together the butter and powdered sugar-free sweetener until fluffy (about 2-3 minutes) using an electric mixer. Beat in vanilla extract, almond extract and egg.
3️⃣ Using an electric mixer, slowly add in the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix until just combined.
4️⃣ Pinch off a piece of dough and roll in between the palms of your hands. Make equal amounts of the sizes of balls. A large ball that is about 1 – 1 1/4 inch in diameter. A medium ball that is 3/4 – 1 inch in diameter and a small ball that is about 1/2 inch in diameter.
5️⃣ Bake the large balls first. Place each large ball on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Flatten each ball with the bottom of a glass or your hand (should be about 1/4 inch thick). Refrigerate flatten cookies for 5-15 minutes in order to keep them from spreading while baking. Bake at 325 degrees Fahrenheit for 7-8 minutes or just before the edges turn golden brown. Remove from oven and let sit until COOLED COMPLETELY before transferring to a wire rack.
6️⃣ Repeat with medium balls and bake for 6 minutes. Repeat with small balls and bake for 5 minutes.
7️⃣ Add softened butter to a medium bowl. Cream with an electric mixer until fluffy, then slowly add in powdered sugar free sweetener. Mix until combined. Add in vanilla extract and a pinch of salt. If buttercream is too thick for piping, add 1-3 tablespoons of nut milk or heavy cream. Stir in green and yellow food coloring until desired coloring is achieved. Place frosting in a piping bag fitted with a star tip.
8️⃣ Lay down a large cookie. Pipe frosting on top. Place a medium cookie on top of the frosting. Pipe more frosting and top with the small cookie. Add a small dollop of more frosting. Sprinkle sprinkles around the cookie tree. Repeat with remaining cookies.

  1. I only eat carnivore but if I was still keto, I guarantee I would not wait. I'm too impatient. But, since I am going to make these for my non keto, high sugar friends, I will wait until they are cooled. I'm not baking any "bad" Christmas treats to hand out this year. My daughter tastes tests for me and she loves your recipes. Thank you!

  2. The keto police comment brought a smile to my face. I agree 100%. A few sprinkles on a Christmas cookie isnt going to cause damage. If someone is offended by that just dont use them. I'm going to make these for my grandkids & I and I will add the sprinkles. The presentation is worth a gram of sugar. Thanks for the video. Much appreciated!

  3. I love your recipes, but even more your delivery and comments. Even if I’m not interested in the recipe, which is rare, I’d watch 😂. Seriously, thank you so much for your tips and tricks. I listen, and they’re very helpful.

  4. Annie, these look absolutely adorable! Very festive. BUT using rolled different sized balls, ingenious! Mom always added a bit of Almond Extract AND always refrigerated her dough! 😉
    Super excited to make these. I might even add a bit of green dye to the cookie dough? ❤️ Tfs…
    Happy Holidays,
    Blessings from Iowa, Lauri

  5. So I bought a "pure" form of 'alternative sweetener' because the regular powdered brand had extra carbs in the form of fillers like dextrin. However, because of the 'pure' form of this sweetener, it doesn't have the same amount of volume or bulk, as a regular one. Can you suggest anything that will add that extra volume back in that doesn't really screw up the texture?

  6. Another fantastic recipe from Annie! These are so cute and look so very special! I’m not working any more, but if I were? I’d have made a batch of these cute little trees, one for each person in my department! There were a dozen of us, so it would have been so fun to create a forest! They’d look spectacular on a dessert buffet!
