Keto Tagalong Cookies (Get Your Girl Scout Cookie Fix!)

Keto Tagalongs Cookies

yield: 24 SERVINGS

prep time: 40 MINUTES

cook time: 12 MINUTES

total time: 52 MINUTES

Ingredients

Shortbread Cookie:

Almond Butter Filling:

Chocolate Topping:

Directions

1

To make the shortbread cookies:

 

In a large bowl, combine butter, erythritol, and cream together on low speed for two minutes until fluffy.

2

Slowly add in salt, almond flour, and vanilla extract. Mix on low until the dough has formed a soft ball. Keep in mind that the dough will be sticky.

3

Place dough between two pieces of parchment paper and roll out making sure dough is no thinner than 1/4". Place parchment paper on a baking sheet and chill for at least 20 minutes. Having a firm dough will help cut out the cookies.

4

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

5

Cut out 1" cookie with a circle cookie cutter. Use a spatula to lift and place cutouts on a lined parchment baking sheet. Using a spoon or your thumb, gently press a small imprint into the center of the cookie to make a well for the filling.

6

Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes or until the edge turns golden brown. Remove from the oven and let cool on the baking sheet.

7

To make the almond butter filling:

 

In a small bowl, add all almond butter filling ingredients and mix with a fork. Place in microwave for 10 seconds intervals stirring in between until melted and creamy. This will be a thick caramel-like texture.

8

Add a small dollop of almond butter filling to each shortbread cookie and very gently spread over the cookie with a spoon. The cookies will be fragile if not completely cooled so spread delicately! Move to a cooling rack when finished.

9

To make the chocolate coating:

 

Melt chocolate chips in the microwave in 15-second intervals or in a double boiler until completely melted. Add in 1 teaspoon of coconut oil to help smooth out chocolate for a thinner consistency (optional).

10

Spoon chocolate over the cookies to create a thin, even layer of chocolate on top that just starts to run down the side. You can also dip the top of the cookie directly into the chocolate, though cookies may still be too delicate. Avoid lifting the cookies off the cooling rack until the chocolate has completely set. You can also put them in the fridge to cool if you'd like them to set faster.

Enjoy!

Hip Recipe Tips:

    • I love using these cookie cutters to create perfectly round cookies, though the set comes with some fun shape options! You can flip the scalloped edge to use the side with a nice clean circle shape (which is what I used for these cookies). If you do not have a round cookie cutter, you can also use a small glass to achieve the same circle cut-out shape.
    • Dairy-free? You can replace the butter in the Tagalongs recipe with coconut oil.
    • Rolling out the dough between two sheets of parchment paper is key to prevent any chance of sticking. Plus, it eliminates the need to use extra flour in the roll out process!
    • Once cookies have been removed from the oven, make sure you don’t skip the step to press down the center of the cookie with a spoon or thumb. This ensures there’s a small well to fill with yummy almond/peanut butter filling!

Don’t be alarmed by the high total carb count!

Fiber and erythritol (the main ingredient in Swerve) do not affect blood sugar in the same way that regular carbs do, so we subtracted them from the total carb count. You’ll see that the net carbs are much lower once you remove the sugar alcohols and fiber.

    The 1st step for the shortbread cookie directions says ‘In a large bowl, combine butter, erythritol, and cream together on low speed for two minutes until fluffy.’ but i did not see ‘cream’ in ingredients. Is an ingredient missing?

    • Margie

      That is just a cooking term used when you mix butter and “sugar” together.

      • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

        Thanks for the helpful comment, Margie!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Marie! That just means to mix until creamy. 😊
