 1 cup Almond Flour
 3 tbsp Butter, softened
 3 tbsp Sugar substitute such as Stevia or Erythritol
 1 cup Keto Vanilla Frosting, optional
For the frosting base (optional)
 3 cups Suagr-free Powdered Sugar
 ½ cup Butter, softened

1

Preheat the oven to 180C/350F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

2

In a mixing bowl, use a hand mixer to beat the butter and sugar together until fluffy. Slowly add in the almond flour until fully incorporated and a crumbly dough remains.

3

Using your hands, shape the crumbled dough into a firm ball. Cover the ball of dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate it for 10 minutes.

4

Remove the dough from the refrigerator and place it between two sheets of parchment paper. Use a rolling pin to roll out the dough into half an inch of thickness. Peel off the top piece of parchment papet and using a cookie cutter, cut out cookies from the dough. Place the cookies onto the baking sheet. Re-shape the excess dough back into a ball and roll it out again. Repeat the process until all the dough has been used up.

5

Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes. Remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool completely, before frosting, if desired.

For the Frosting:
6

In a large mixing bowl, beat your powdered sugar and butter until combined, and smooth. Add in your vanilla extract.

7

Add your flavor ingredients and continue beating until the desired texture is received. For a thinner texture, add more milk.

Notes:
8

1 serving is 1/2 cup.

For vegan frostings, replace the butter with dairy free butter and dairy free cream cheese.
* Start with 1 tablespoon and add more, as needed.

9

TO STORE: Regardless of which flavor you make, you must store them all in the refrigerator, in a sealable container. They will all keep well for up to 1 week. Be sure to let your frosting sit at room temperature for 30-45 minutes, before using.

10

TO FREEZE: If you'd like to freeze leftover frosting, store it in a shallow container and use it within 2 months of freezing. Thaw it overnight in the refrigerator, and let it sit at room temperature before frosting a cake or other dessert.
