Ground almonds create an "almond flour" which is a wonderful substitute for wheat flour for many baking recipes.

Makes about 26

1/2 cup butter, softened
1-1/2 cups ground almonds
1 cup granulated Splenda
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
2 tablespoons granulated Splenda
1 teaspoon cinnamon

In a medium bowl, beat butter until creamy. Add half the ground almonds, 1 cup Splenda, egg, vanilla, baking soda and cream of tartar. Beat until well combined. Beat in remaining ground almonds. Cover and chill in bowl for 1 hour. Pre-heat oven to 350 F. In a small bowl, combine the 2 tablespoons Splenda and the cinnamon; mix well. Roll chilled dough into 1-inch balls. Gently roll each ball in the cinnamon-Splenda mixture to coat and place 2 inches apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes until lightly browned at the edges. Carefully remove from pan to cooling rack to cool completely.

Note: 1.5 net carbs per cookie

Would make this again.
Please do not use Splenda! Great recipe, but please use Swerve or Xylitol, or a combination of those for better results. Splenda is so bad for you! It kills the healthy flora in your gut - don't do it! 4 stars

Would make this again.
I used soy flour instead of almonds and 2 eggs instead of 1 for a more cookie dough consistency (probably due to the difference in flour.) These cookies were AMAZING! I had no problems with crumbling or any of that, the cookies are rum ball size. Will definitely be making more of these. 5 stars
