Low carb Snickerdoodles

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
PREHEAT oven to 375°, and line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
  1. USING a stand or hand-held mixer, add the cream cheese, butter, sugar substitute, egg and vanilla extract to the mixing bowl, and beat on high until creamy and fluffy.
  2. ADD in almond flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt, and mix on medium until well blended.
  3. USING a teaspoon or a cookie scoop, drop 16 evenly spaced cookies on the prepared sheet pan, and push down slightly on each.
