Total Time 25 minutes
Servings 24 to 30 cookies
- 1 cup butter
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar free sweetener
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla
- 2 cups finely chopped pecans
- 1/2 cup coconut flour
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated orange peel optional
- 1/2 cup sugar free powdered sweetener
- 2 teaspoons freshly grated nutmeg
Cream the butter and sweetener together until well blended, light, and fluffy.
Beat in the vanilla and pecans.
Add the coconut flour and beat on low until well combined.
Chill for 30 minutes or up to 2 days.
Preheat the oven to 325F.
Stir the powdered sweetener and nutmeg together until well mixed.
For the dough into 1-1/4 inch balls.
Roll each ball in the nutmeg mixture.
Place on a baking sheet covered with Sil-pat sheet or parchment.
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until light, golden brown.
They will probably lose their "ball" shape but it's ok.
Let cool completely on the cookie sheet. If you try to move them when they are still warm you'll have crumbs.
