These crunchy little cookies are inspired by an Italian recipe! You'll have to be patient though – you need to leave them overnight so that they crisp up. But they're worth it!

When you come to make them you might be surprised at the small yield – this is deliberate because actually I came up with this recipe to use a leftover egg white. Now, if you have two or even three leftover egg whites, then this recipe is SUPER easy to increase.

 

How to Make Low Carb Amaretti Cookies

Place an egg white, cream of tartar, granular sweetener (I used Lakanto) and almond extract together into a stand mixer bowl, and whisk until frothy and glossy. Stir in some almond flour until thoroughly combined.

Drop the mixture into 12 “puddles” on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat. Press a slivered almond into the center of each cookie.

Bake in a preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, until the cookies start to darken at the edges.

Leave to cool for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire cooling rack. Leave on the rack overnight to crisp up, OR place in an airtight container for a softer cookie.
