Low Carb Luxury Recipe!
Mantecaditos (Rum Cookies)

  • 1/2 cup non-hydrogenated shortening or lard
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 1/2 cups vanilla [zero-carb] protein powder
  • 1 cup Splenda
  • 1 Tablespoon almond extract
  • 1 teaspoon Rum
    (or 1/2 tsp rum flavored extract)
  • 2 egg yolks

Preheat oven to 325°F.

With an electric mixer, mix everything but vanilla protein powder until creamy. Add the vanilla protein powder and mix slowly (or you will form a cloud powder) until a crumbly paste forms. Make a little ball with it and place on a cookie sheet - repeat to make 40 balls/cookies. Gently press the middle of each to flatten a bit (not too hard - they'll crumble.) Bake for approximately 20 minutes at 325°F, (depending on your oven.) Keep watch because they burn easily. Cool and enjoy!

Makes 40 cookies. 1 carb per cookie.
