If you're on the ketogenic diet or just looking to lower carbs, making keto snowball cookies from scratch is a wonderful option for a sweet snack or after-dinner treat. Look for erythritol, which is made by multiple brands, near the sugar substitutes in the baking aisle. —Dawn Parker, Surrey, British Columbia

  • 2/3 cup almond flour
  • 1 cup finely chopped pecans
  • Granulated erythritol equivalent to 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 7 tablespoons butter, softened

  1. In a large bowl, combine the first 5 ingredients. Stir in butter until evenly blended. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes or until easy to handle.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°. Shape dough into 1-in. balls; place 2 in. apart on parchment-lined baking sheets. Bake until slightly golden around edge, 10-12 minutes.
