Lemon Cookies

  • 1/2 cup Cream Cheese
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 10 tbsp erythritol, powered
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 cups almond Flour
  • zest of one lemon
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice or one large lemon juiced

Lemon Glaze

  • 1/4 cup erythritol, powered
  • 1-1/2 tbsp Lemon Juice


  • Cream the butter, cream cheese, lemon juice, and lemon zest together with the powdered erythritol until smooth.
  • Add the egg and mix until well-combined.
  • Add the almond flour and mix. The dough is fairly soft at this stage.
  • Wrap it in cling film and place either in the fridge for 20 - 30 minutes or in the freezer for about 10 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 Fahrenheit.
  • Line 2 baking trays with parchment paper. Form 24 cookie dough balls and place them on the trays, flattening them slightly with your hand.
  • Bake for 15 minutes or until lightly browned at the bottom (and ever so slightly browned on top).
  • Remove from the oven and let cool completely.
  • Stir together the lemon juice, powdered erythritol and lemon zest for the glaze and spread over the cooled cookies.
