Helpful Tips and FAQs

Can I use a different flour in this recipe?

For the best results in these Sugar Free Valentines Cookies use Carbalose Flour. It is whiter than King Arthur Keto flour and the finished cookies look and taste like traditional sugar cookies.

I have used a small amount of all-purpose flour in this recipe. I find using all Carbalose Flour results in a very dry dense cookie. Adding a little all-purpose flour lightens the cookie up and proved a little more crispiness.

If you choose to omit the all-purpose flour and go with all Carbalose flour, you can, but you may need to add a little more milk to compensate for the denseness.

Using other flour such as Almond Flour or Coconut flour is also an option. You may need to adjust the liquid amounts and the final nutritional information will differ from what is listed below.

Don’t overwork the dough.

This is a mistake that is so easy to make, that can cause you to end up with cookies that are tough as leather (well almost). Mix the dry ingredients until they are a loose crumble but are well combined. Then shape it into a ball, wrap it in plastic wrap and chill.

Can I use shortening instead of butter?

You can if you prefer shortening. The cookie will likely be whiter in colour after baking. You will not have any of the underlying buttery flavour in your finished cookies.

Using Different Sweeteners.

Use whichever sweeteners you prefer. You may need to adjust the amounts and it may impact the final nutritional information. I always try to use Splenda sweetener whenever possible as it does not impact my blood sugar in a way that sweeteners that contain sugar alcohols do. If that is not an issue for you by all means make substitutes to suit your own needs.

Can I add food colouring to this recipe?

You can add food colouring if desired. When adding colour to the dough, good quality bold gel or paste colouring works best. The cookies will bake lighter than the dough, so make the dough a little darker than the desired colour. This is especially important when making red or blue colours.

Do I need to chill the dough?

It is not mandatory but you will get a better cut after the dough has been chilled. The chilling helps to keep the dough from becoming too sticky to work with. If you are pressed for time, you can reduce the chilling time to 30 minutes, but I don’t recommend less time.
