I don't know about you, but it isn't really Christmas at my house until the smell of cookies baking fills the air.

Every year I start the holiday season off by watching National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation and baking cookies.

Does anyone else have a certain movie they have to watch to start the season off?

Or a favorite cookie they just can't wait to make for Christmas?

This is that cookie for me.

When I first went low carb I of course thought that meant holiday cookies were off the table. I was bummed. Baking cookies has always been a tradition of mine going back soooo many years. That first Christmas was a rough one.

But that made me determined to figure a way to keep my tradition going. So I hit the interwebs to search for recipes. I took those recipes and twisted them a bit to meet my families taste, and these were the first cookies I made.

It was springtime so I added some berries to them and came up with these Low Carb Berry Cream Cheese Sugar Cookies.

Everyone loved them. Even my picky sweets loving granddaughter!

I was shocked, and so damn happy!!

I am pretty easy to please, my non-keto family memebers? Not so much!!

If these cookies can keep a speak your mind kind of 4 year old happy I am pretty sure your family will love them too!

Last thoughts about Keto Slice and Bake Sugar Cookies


I prefer these cookies with my cream cheese frosting but, if you are a naked cookie lover, by all means, chow down on them unfrosted!

Alternatively, you could dust the cookie with some Besti monk fruit and allulose powdered sweetener out of the oven.

You could melt some sugar-free chocolate with a bit of coconut butter and dip, or drizzle, the cookies with that.

Or, you could mix some of the powdered sugar with water (about 1/4 cup sugar to 1 tablespoon water) and food coloring. Then dip, or decorate, your cookies.
