How to make Cream Cheese Almond Cookies?


  1. In a large bowl, combine almond flour, sweetener, cream cheese, melted butter, and crushed almonds nuts with an electric hand mixer and whisk until the mixture is well combined.
  2. Make cookie dough balls about the size of a golf ball, place them on a baking sheet, cookie sheet, or parchment paper, and use the palm of your hands to press down.
  3. Bake at 325 F for 16-20 minutes or until the bottom edges start to slightly brown. Once done, place on a cooling rack and wait at least 10 minutes to cool the cookie prior to handling.

Pro Tip

Quickly cool the cookies placing them in the freezer for 5 minutes. The cookies must be cooled before handling because the cream cheese needs to cool to hold the cookies together.

  • Using a food processor, pulse almonds until coarsely chopped but not finely ground. This will provide the the nutty crunch in the cookie.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine Almond Flour, sweetener, chopped almonds, cream cheese, vanilla and melted butter (melt butter in the microwave, about 30 seconds). Note - make sure melted butter is at room temperature when pouring otherwise it will 'cook' the batter.

  1. My cookies turned out like soft cookies even when cooled. Is it supposed to be the texture? How should I store them?

    • LowCarbingAsian

      Hi Cheryl! Yes, these are softer cookies even after cooling. You can place them in the fridge for storage and eat as is (the texture will be neutral) or throw them in the microwave for ~10 seconds for a softer texture. Hope that helps!

  2. made 23 cookies. crispy & thin. added 4 capfuls of almond extract, next time will double erythrotol as they were not sweet enuff 4me🙂. only 2% of erythrotol gets absorbed into body, so am generous with it.
    thanks so much for recipe!
