My favorite childhood cookie made low carb and grain-free! These delicious maple cream sandwich cookies are a fun snack for kids and adults alike.
You know that feeling you get when you find a twenty-dollar bill on the ground in front of you?
That’s a pretty great feeling. You know that feeling you get when you take the time to ask around and discover that it actually belongs to the elderly woman in front of you who didn’t notice it fall out of her pocket?
Let’s face it; that’s an even better feeling. When you see her face light up and hear her words of thanks, you know you made the right move. In our hectic day-to-day world, little kindnesses matter.
They matter a great deal. Grand gestures of charity and kindness are wonderful too, of course, but it doesn’t take buckets of money or hours of community service to be generous and brighten someone’s day.
Just taking a moment to offer a little help, a kind word or a sweet but unexpected gesture can make all the difference to a stranger or a friend. Little kindnesses make the world go round.
- 2 cups almond flour
- 1/3 cup Swerve Sweetener
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 large egg
- 2 1/2 tbsp butter melted
- 1 tsp maple extract
- 1/8 tsp stevia extract
- 1/4 cup butter softened
- 1 cup powdered Swerve Sweetener
- 2 tbsp cream room temperature
- 3/4 tsp maple extract
Preheat oven to 275 F and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
Whisk almond flour, sweetener, baking powder, and salt together in a large bowl. Stir in egg, butter, maple extract, and stevia extract until dough comes together.
Turn dough out onto a large piece of parchment paper and pat into a rough rectangle. Top with another piece of parchment.
Roll dough out to about 1/8 inch thickness. Using a 2-inch maple leaf cookie cutter (or whatever shape you prefer) to cut out as many shapes as possible. The dough can be re-rolled multiple times to get more cookies.
Place half the cookies face up and half face down on the prepared baking sheet (if your cookie cutter is slightly irregular, this allows you to match them up properly after they are baked).
Bake about 20 minutes, until light golden brown and firm to the touch. Watch them carefully, they can easily get too dark.
Remove from the oven and let cool completely.
