Instructions

  • Use a handheld mixer to cream together the butter, powdered erythritol/monkfruit blend, and keto brown sugar in a large bowl. Beat in the egg, vanilla extract, and peppermint extract. Stir in the almond flour, cocoa powder, and salt.
  • Roll the dough out between 2 sheets of parchment paper to 1/4-inch thick. Use a 6cm round cookie cutter to stamp out the cookies. Use a thin metal spatula to transfer the cookies to a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Re-roll the dough scraps and stamp out more cookies until the dough is gone (I get about 30 cookies, 6cm in diameter).
  • Transfer the cookie trays to the freezer to chill the cookie dough for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350F.
  • Bake the cookies right from the freezer until the cookies are set, about 15 to 20 minutes, rotating the trays once halfway through. Cool the cookies completely before dipping in chocolate.
  • Once the cookies are cooled, melt the dark chocolate. Stir in the peppermint extract.
  • Dip each cookie in the chocolate, let the excess chocolate drip off, and then place them on wax paper-lined baking trays.
  • Let the chocolate set, and then serve.
