As with any butter cookies, these will spread during baking. It happens because butter melts. To keep the cookies in good shape, make sure you refrigerate the dough. I also like to pop them in a freezer for 5 minutes just before baking.

  • ¾ cup fine almond flour
  • ¼ cup Erythritol

How to store keto shortbread cookies

Room temperature:

Cool cookies completely after baking. If the cookies are placed in an airtight container while still warm, they’ll become soggy due to steam. 

Line an airtight container with wax paper. Place the cooled cookies in a single layer on the wax paper in the container. If you need to use several layers to accommodate all of the cookies, place a piece of wax paper between each layer of cookies.

Store the airtight container at room temperature, and eat the cookies within one week.

You can also place these in a fridge and store up to 10 days. 

 

Freezer storage:

If you want to freeze the keto shortbread cookies, wrap them all together with two layers of foil. Place the wrapped cookies in a freezer bag or airtight container. Label the container with the date frozen. Place the cookies in the freezer, and eat them within three to four weeks.
