Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350F.
  • Whisk together the butter, sweetener, egg yolk, vanilla extract, almond extract, and liquid stevia in a large bowl.
  • Add the almond flour, salt, and baking powder, and stir to combine.
  • Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and chill for 15 minutes in the freezer.
  • Put the chopped pecans in a shallow bowl. Use a 1-tablespoon scoop to measure out the dough. Roll the dough into balls, and then roll the balls in the chopped pecans.
  • Arrange the cookie dough balls evenly on a large baking tray (they should all fit on 1 half sheet pan).
  • Bake for 10 minutes, rotating the tray once halfway through.
  • Remove the cookie tray from the oven and use a 1/2-teaspoon-sized measuring spoon to make an indentation in the center of each cookie. Spoon 1/2 teaspoon of raspberry jam into the center of each.
  • Return to the oven and bake until the cookies are light golden, about 1 to 3 minutes more.
  • Let the cookies cool completely on the tray before removing.

Variations:

  • Chocolate kisses. Instead of jam, go with Hershey’s Kisses! Before baking, lightly press 1 chocolate candy into the center of each cookie. Bake for 10 to 13 minutes. Or to keep it low carb, press 1 chunk of keto chocolate into the center of each.
  • Cherry almond. This flavor combination is dreamy! Add 1/4 cup of stevia-sweetened mini chocolate chips and 1/8 teaspoon almond extract to the batter, skip the jam, and add 1/2 maraschino cherry to the center of each cookie before baking. Bake for 10 to 13 minutes.
