Ingredients

  • 2 cups super-fine blanched almond flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1/3 cup granular sugar replacement made with erythritol
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 oz cream cheese, softened (2 tablespoons)
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract

Steps

  • 1
    In food processor, place almond flour, coconut flour, sugar replacement and salt. Pulse until combined. Add butter, cream cheese and almond extract; pulse 8 to 10 times or until dough begins to come together. Remove dough; shape into flattened disk. Wrap in plastic wrap; refrigerate about 1 1/2 hours or until firm.
  • 2
    Heat oven to 350°F.
  • 3
    Place chilled dough between two pieces of parchment paper; roll into 10x8-inch rectangle, about 1/4-inch thick. Peel top piece of parchment paper off dough.
  • 4
    Cut into 8 rows by 4 rows. Place rectangles 1 inch apart on ungreased large cookie sheets. Prick with fork, if desired.
  • 5
    Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Cool on cookie sheet 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 15 minutes.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Traditional shortbread has just 3 ingredients—butter, sugar and flour. This variation still achieves a crumbly, tender cookie using keto-friendly* ingredients.
  • tip 2
    Roll the chilled dough into a rectangle by stopping occasionally to reshape the dough into a rectangle using a ruler or other straight-edged utensil.
  • tip 3
    This keto-friendly* shortbread recipe calls for a granular sugar replacement that contains erythritol, oligosaccharides and natural flavor.
