Low Carb Swedish Butter Cookies

Now that we are into the new year, hopefully if you have been reading this blog for a while, you know that I think New Years resolutions are the wrong thing to do. If not, here are my posts about New Years resolutions and what I think about them.

We are so close to moving in, we can taste it. Tony is finishing the last thing in the house. I am starting to move some stuff of mine over to my new closets that I am not wearing at the moment. I can see in the next week or so finally biting the bullet.

This week’s recipe is a holiday cookie from Sweden. I am starting with a recipe from Taste of Home for Swedish Butter Cookies. This recipe is pretty simple. Six ingredients in total.

Here’s what I changed:

  • I swapped out the sugars for their sweetener equivalents.
  • I swapped the flour with almond and coconut flours to reduce the carbs.

Here are the final stats:

Here’s the final recipe:
