How to Make Keto Snowball Cookies

To get started preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and line a baking pan with parchment paper.

Grab a large bowl and combine 1/2 cup of your powdered Erythritol with the almond flour and salt. Now add the softened butter, milk and vanilla extract to the dry ingredients. Start kneading all the ingredients together until it reaches a dough texture.

Time to start shaping the snowballs! This recipe makes a good-sized batch of 26 snowballs so it’s great to share with others. Divide the dough into 26 pieces and shape them into balls with your hands.

Arrange the snowballs on your baking pan and bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Once the snowballs are ready let them rest until they reach room temperature. Dust over the remaining Erythritol to complete the snowballs.

Optionally add a dried cranberry to each cookie (a great idea if others aren’t worrying about carbs!)
