Keto Shortbread Cookies

When I was young, I remember my grandmother always having around a circular, blue tin of shortbread cookies close-by. Every time I went to her house, they were somewhere within reach, it seemed.

Sometimes they were in the cabinet. Sometimes, they were on top of the refrigerator. The rest of the time they were sitting in the middle of the kitchen table taunting me. If I got extra lucky, she had them in her hand, lid off, ready to go by the time I had gotten out of the car and made it to the front door.

After a quick Google search, it turns out these cookies still exist. They are made by a company named Royal Dansk and are called “butter cookies”. I think it’s just a fancy way of saying “yummy and delicious shortbread cookie awesomeness”.

I’d always eat a few (or a lot) of them each time I visited. I even had to be fair, too, since each tin contained several different cookie “designs”. A few of each wouldn’t hurt, right?

The bad news is, these keto shortbread cookies don’t come in a tin, nor do they come in various designs. The good news is, they are buttery, sweet, and yummy.

When we were looking to make these, our main goal was to recreate the crunchy, buttery taste. Finding the “just right” level of sweetness was also a priority, kinda like the porridge that was not too hot and not too cold; just right.

It takes just a handful of “keep on hand” keto ingredients to make these cookies extra delicious. Do yourself a favor and make a batch for a sweet treat after your next meal!
