Super Soft Keto Sugar Cookies with Icing

Keto Sugar Cookies

yield: 24 SERVINGS

prep time: 1 HOUR 15 MINUTES

cook time: 8 MINUTES

total time: 1 HOUR 23 MINUTES

Ingredients

Keto Confectioner Icing:

Directions

1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2

In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, cream together butter, cream cheese, and Swerve granular until combined. Add in egg and extracts, mix on high until fluffy.

3

Add remaining dry ingredients into the bowl and mix on low making sure everything is mixed well.

4

Shape cookie dough into a large ball and cover with plastic wrap.  Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

5

Once chilled, sprinkle coconut flour over the surface and roll out dough. If you do not have a smooth surface, you can roll out the dough between 2 pieces of parchment paper. You will want the dough to be 1/4" thick. Cut out dough with cookie cutters and place on a parchment-lined cookie sheet.

6

Bake in the oven for about 8 minutes or until the edges turn slightly golden brown. Remove cookie sheet from the oven. Do NOT remove cookies from the cookie sheet until they are completely cooled.  This will take about 10 minutes.

7

While cookies are cooling, you can make the simple confectioner icing. To frost all of the cookies, you'll mix together 6 tablespoons of Swerve confectioners and 3 tablespoon of heavy whipping cream. You can double this if you are icing an even larger batch of cookies.

Enjoy!

Iced sugar cookies are back on the list to make this Christmas. The tradition of decorating cookies around the table for hours is still going strong in my family thanks to this keto sugar cookies recipe! They taste just like grandma’s sugar cookies, with that buttery almond flavor and smooth, sweet icing – but without all of the sugar and carbs!

Say hello to the best keto sugar cookies around! 👋 They are soft and delicious.

HIP TIPS:

  • If you don’t have a smooth surface to roll out your cookie dough, you can simply place the cookie dough between 2 pieces of parchment paper.
  • Do NOT transfer cookies from the cookie sheet right after they are removed from the oven. You will actually want to let them cool on the pan for about 10 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack or plate.
  • Keep in mind that these keto cookies do brown more than typical sugar cookies, but they’ll still remain really soft due to the high-fat content.

    If I only have almond flour, do you think I could do 1 1/2 cups almond flour instead of almond and coconut flour?

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Coconut flour soaks up more moisture. Usually, it’s 1 cup almond flour to 1/4 cup coconut flour so I would almost bump it up to 2-2 1/2 cups almond flour. You will also need to up the vanilla since the almond flour has a strong taste. Let us know how it turns out, Taryn!

      • Taryn

        Thanks!!

  2. Delores

    Can I use lupin flour instead of almond flour and coconut flour.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Great question! You could use that too. It seems many use Lupin for cakes and breads. The exchange ration would be 50:75 with almond flour. Hope this helps!

  3. April

    How did you color the sprinkles? Food dye Swerve?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi April! Yes! You can use a tiny bit of food coloring to color granular to make your own sprinkles OR grab these Keto approved sprinkles. Hope this helps!

      • Sara

        We also dye shredded coconut to use for sprinkles too. Cheap and easy!

        • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

          Love that idea, Sara! Thanks for the suggestion!

  4. Kate

    Hello, Someone in the family is allergic to nuts, so can I use all coconut flour? What else would I have to change? Thank you!

    • Ashley (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Hey, Kate, you could sub out the almond flour for coconut flour but remember it is not a 1:1 ratio. It is more like a 1:7 ratio.

  5. Kim

    Does the almond extract give the cookies a strong almond flavor? Is there another purpose for it in this recipe? Could it just be omitted?

    • Ashley (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Hey Kim, Yes you can omit the almond extract and just use the vanilla.

  6. M Julia Chandler

    Great Idea and thank you for the recipe and additional comments. I will try and post my afterwards comment

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh great! You’re so welcome! We look forward to hearing how they turn out for you!

  7. Jaimie

    Anything else instead of cream cheese I can use?

  8. Brit

    Hmm Lupin flour… I’ll have to look into that. I’d love to read some comments from anyone whose made these. I don’t like the taste of coconut flour and really try to conceal it or not use it. Also, I don’t want to strong an almond flour taste which can appear grainy tasting sometimes. Lol, but I am definitely willing to give these a try. Less sugar will be better for Santa’s health ❤️

  9. Bonnie

    I wonder if this could be done as a drop (and flatten) cookie or rolled into a log and cut. I don’t have the talent to roll out regular dough let alone finicky low-carb dough and I don’t have a rolling pin either.

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      I think you could roll a ball, then flatten with your hand or bottom of a cup. As long as it’s 1/4 inch thick, it should be fine, Bonnie!

  10. Susan

    Do these cookies freeze well?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Susan! You could freeze the dough, and then just pull it out to thaw before baking. Hope this helps!

      • Sandee Cleary

        Do you think they would be ok if I baked them then froze them?

        • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

          Hi Sandee! You could give it a try, however the moisture from thawing out may make them soggy.
