King Arthur Keto Flour Version of my favorite Sugar Cookies - Keto Sugar Cookies - low carb and sugar free

Keto version of my favorite sugar cookie

 

This version from Crisco is an oldie-but-a-goodie and happens to be my favorite simple drop-style sugar cookie version.  The problem?  It's 15 carbs and 8 sugar grams per 'traditional full sugar/flour' cookie.  Eek!  We eat primarily low carb and sugar free so eating 3 of these (because seriously, who only eats one cookie?) is something my brain can't even fathom.  45 carbs and 24 grams of sugar?  That's enough carbs for 2 days; and more sugar than I typically eat in a week.  But... so so perfect and good.

Original version

1 c Crisco Shortening
1 1/2 c sugar
2 eggs
2 t vanilla extract
2 1/2 c all-purpose flour
1 t baking soda
1/2 t salt

Oven to 375.  Line baking sheet with parchment paper.   Beat shortening and sugar on high speed 2 minutes. Add eggs and vanilla. Beat until smooth. Beat in flour, baking soda and salt.  Drop on prepared baking sheets and bake 9 to 11 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool 2 minutes. Remove to wire rack to cool completely.
