Holiday Season is around the corner. I’ve been thinking about making some fun and easy holiday desserts and cookies, preferably sugar free. I just made these Low-Carb Sugar Cookies with a few simple ingredients and they taste delicious.

These cookies can be baked as they are, or you can add festive holiday sprinkles or drizzle with chocolate, for a tastier, more festive look.

Holiday menu planning, food preparation and food saving tips are always welcome for me and today I’m sharing some with you.

Holiday season can be the most wonderful time of the year, but also often gets hectic and and busy for those who are hosting. With a little extra effort and some planning, you can spend the most exciting holiday season with friends, family and delicious food.

I recently got a FoodSaver® FM5200 Vacuum Sealing System and I’m amazed how wonderful it is! When used with their FoodSaver® 11″ x 16′ Vacuum Seal Roll, 2 Pack it keeps food fresh and sealed and also saves you a lot of time.

It is perfect for veggies and meats, but today I’ll also be showing you how to use it for the dough for these Low-Carb Sugar Cookies.

I’m usually in charge or desserts around the holidays and I make a lot of cookies.

This year I’m making both low-carb and regular cookies.

I decided to make some dough in advance, seal and freeze it for later.

While cookie dough might not require a lot of time to prepare, it actually does, when you have to do many other things at the same time.

That’s why I prepared the dough for these Low-carb sugar cookies, shaped it into balls and put it in a FoodSaver® bag, made from the FoodSaver® 11″ x 16′ Vacuum Seal Roll, sealed and froze extra dough for later.

What ingredients do you need to make these Low-Carb Sugar Cookies?

Since these cookies are low-carb, there is no real sugar used. They are made with powdered Erythritol. Any low-carb, Keto sweetener, that is good for baking will work.

  • butter
  • cream cheese
  • vanilla
  • almond extract
  • egg yolks
  • almond flour
  • low-carb sweetener
  • salt
  • sprinkles

How to make these low-carb sugar cookies?

  1. Bring all ingredients to room temperature.
  2. If you are baking some cookies and not freezing the whole dough, preheat oven to 350 F.
  3. In a bowl, beat together butter and cream cheese for 1 minute. Add sweetener and beat until combined.
  4. Add egg yolks, vanilla and almond extract and beat to incorporate.
  5. Combine salt and the almond flour and add to the mixture. Beat until just combined.
  6. Using a small cookie scoop (about 2 tbsp of dough) shape balls from the dough.
  7. Place on a baking sheet, leaving space between the cookies.
  8. Press with your palm to flatten. Top with sprinkles (optional).
  9. Bake (no chilling required) for 12-14 minutes, until the tops are a light golden color.
  10. Let the cookies cool completely on the baking sheet.
  11. Place in zip lock bags and keep at room temperature for up to a week.

Protecting my low-carb sugar cookie dough from freezer burn and from absorbing unpleasant smells in the freezer, also keeping the shaped unbaked cookies nice and round.

2. Insert cookies in bag, with some space between. I freeze 9 or 12 at a time. Place in the vacuum and seal bar. The vacuum will remove all of the air from the bag and then seal it automatically
