Monkfruit erythritol blend is my top choice.  Other keto friendly sweeteners will work  as well.  Just make sure the measuring ratio is 1:1.

What is the net carb count on these keto strawberry cookies?

About 1.5g net carbs per cookies.

Can I replace the almond flour with coconut flour?

Unfortunately,  almond flour and coconut flour are not interchangeable because they have different density properties that would affect the entire recipe.

Are there any pre-made, store bought syrups I can use instead of making the strawberry sauce mixture?

Tips on making these strawberry cream cheese cookies?

  • Use a silicon baking mat or parchment paper to line the cookie sheet.
  • Add the dry ingredients before adding the wet ingredients.
  • Mix and fold the flour mixture very well before rolling it into balls.
  • Some suggest using keto friendly powder sweetener for making desserts, so you can choose to do so if you prefer.

7) Roll the dough into 1 inch size balls and place on a silicone baking mat or parchment paper inside a baking tray.  Press down the dough balls using your palm of your hand to roughly 1/4 inch thickness.

8) With your thumb, make an imprint and press about 3/4 the way down.

9) Fill the cookies with strawberry sauce in the center.  I recommend slightly overfilling just enough to create a mound but not over-spilling.  The cookie will expand as it bakes, so the center will as well.  Slightly overfilling will compensate for this.

10) Bake at 325 F for 16-20 minutes (ours took 18 minutes) or until bottom edges start to slightly brown.  Once done, wait at least 10 minutes for cookie to cool down prior to handling. We prefer enjoying the cookies once they have completely cooled down and hardened, which takes about 1 hour, but it’s up to you!

  1. Technically failed because the dough turned out too soft and the cookie cannot hold its shape. But the taste.. it’s heavenly! Will definitely try again. It’s quite challenging to convert oz to gram and cups to gram. Would it be possible to standard the ingredients in grams? Appreciate your recipes because Asians can’t eat a western Keto diet all the time. Hope you can have a YouTube channel in future!

    • LowCarbingAsian

      Hi Jenny! Did you wait for the cookies to cool down (about 10 minutes) before you picked them up? Right out of the oven, they are very soft but once they cool down, they become less fragile. As for your request to use metric measuring, unfortunately most of our audience uses imperial measuring system, so we would have to cater to that, but I am pretty sure you can easily find a measurement convertor online. We do have video recipes planed, but this will be in the future so stay tuned!!

  2. Hi there! I followed the recipe exactly as written and my cookies came out way too soft too. My dough didn’t resemble anything like your pictures. So weird. Haven’t tasted them yet but the house smells greats so I’m sure they’ll be good. Just sad that they won’t stay together.

    • LowCarbingAsian

      Hi Lenna! Just to make sure, you didn’t make any ingredient substitution, right? Also, did you the dough mix very well (at least 2 minutes)? The more you mix it, the more the cream cheese will break up and hold the dough together. When we make it, we mix it for at least 2-3 minutes. Let us know so we can get to the bottom of it and get you eating those cookies today!

      Edit – Sorry, re-read your comment and it seems that you already baked it and stating it’s too soft? If that’s the case, you have to wait at least 10 minutes to handle them. They are very soft out of the oven and they will harden as they cool down. We usually leave it out to cool for 1 hour when we make ours. If you want to speed up the process, you can also throw them in the fridge for 10 minutes or so. Let us know if that helps!

  3. Love these and other feedback helpful. I want to go on record, however, that this is awesome flavor-wise! These recipes help so I can avoid my own misguided experiments!

    • LowCarbingAsian

      Hi Lorraine – So happy to hear they tasted good! We have disaster experiments all the time but that’s what leads to some of our creative dishes, so a double edged sword! Anyway, glad you liked them!

  4. Hi, I tried this recipe and like others say they were very soft even after 10 min. of cooling time (I actually let them sit for 30min. ).
    However they were very delicious! I’m gonna make them again.

    I have a question regarding nutritional info.
    Is it for 1 cookie or the total of 12 cookies?
    The calorie seems for 1 cookie, but the carb looks for more than 1 cookie.

    I try to watch my carb intake so it’ll be very helpful if you can answer to my question.

    Thank you!

    • LowCarbingAsian

      Hey Nina! All of our cream cheese cookies are going to be on the softer side, especially the thumbprints ones since it’s so thin in the middle, but definitely should hold it’s shape! What we do with our cookies is actually throw them in the fridge right after we bake them (this will make them pretty solid). And when we want to eat one, we just throw it in the microwave for 5-10 seconds to make them soft again.

      As for the nutritional info, it’s listed per 1 cookie, but you’re right…22g of carbs is not right!

      I looked into this and found the program using to calculate the nutritional info was basing the ‘keto strawberry sauce’ with regular sugar filled strawberry jam, hence the reason the carbs were so high!

      The correct net carbs per cookies should be ~1.5g. LMK if you have any other questions!

  5. Hi, I cant seem to understand the nutrition facts they don’t quite add up. Could you give me the right numbers for your correct recipe? How did you get 1.5 Net carbs?

    • LowCarbingAsian

      Hi Ceci! I’m sorry but could you elaborate on what exactly doesn’t added up? The total carb per cookie is around 3.5 (it shows 4 on the nutritional facts because the program automatically round up) and the fiber is 2, so that total net carb is ~1.5g.
