Low Carb Keto Chocolate Peanut Butter Thumbprint Cookies
"Come fly with me. Come fly, come fly away."- Frank Sinatra
This morning I made some classic grandma cookies, so I've been listening to some good old fashioned crooners to put me in the mood.
You really can't go wrong with the Rat Pack.
I found this live recording they did with Johny Carson back in 1965. I've got a clip of Dean Martin below, but you can listen to the whole concert here. When I watch these guys banter, I'm struck by just how drunk they all are. It's played for laughs, especially by Dean Martin. He tells jokes like, "I feel sorry for you people that don't drink. I mean it, cause when you wake up in the morning that's as good as you're going to feel all day." Baddum Chick!
Well, whether you drink or not, you'll definitely feel better after eating one of these low carb chocolate peanut butter thumbprint cookies.
They are soft and chocolatey and only have 3g net carbs each. You make them by mixing up a dough out of almond flour, eggs, sugar-free sweetener, vanilla, baking soda and unsweetened cocoa powder. You form the dough into balls and then stick your thumb right in the middle. (It's very satisfying.) You bake them up and then top them with a mixture of peanut butter, coconut oil and powdered sugar-free sweetener. And you're done. So kick back, pour yourself a drink, and mix up a batch of thumbprint cookies.
