Basic Cookie Recipe

Ingredients
2 1/2 cups almond flour
1 1/2 cups splenda
1 tsp guar or xanthan gum
1 cup butter, soft
1 egg
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt

Mix all ingredients in mixer until blended. Divide into 4 bowls and flavor according to your tastes. Refrigerate at least 4 hours before baking. Make cookies by forming dough into 1/2" balls, placing on cookie sheet. Dip bottom of a glass in splenda (or splenda/cinnamon) mixture and flatten balls. Bake at 375 8-12 min, until lightly browned.

Total: 77 carb (54 NET carbs). (Supposed to get 12 doz cookies, but I got much less so I didn't figure "per cookie" carb count)

Flavoring: add 1 tsp extract to each portion. For chocolate, add 1 oz melted unsweetened chocolate to one portion, and additional Tablesp of Splenda. (add .25 carbs for chocolate).
YOU CAN MAKE HALF THE RECIPE AND CUT THAT IN HALF. ADDE CHOCOLATE TO ONE-HALF AND LET OTHER HALF PLAIN, USING CINNAMON/SPLENDA MIXTURE TO TOP. YOU'LL GET NEARLY 6 DOZ COOKIES, WHICH WOULD RAISE THE CARB COUNT.
