Keto Orange Shortbread Cookies

  • Total Time: 35 minutes
  • Yield: 6 servings 1x


These Orange Shortbread Cookies are crisp, subtly sweet, aromatic with vanilla and orange, and perfect for pairing with a cup of tea.


  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter (softened but not melted)
  • 3 tablespoons Swerve Confectioners
  • 1 large egg white
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh orange zest
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon stevia glycerite
  • 1 1/4 cups almond flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  1. Beat together the butter and Swerve Confectioners, and then beat in the egg white, orange zest, vanilla, and stevia glycerite. Stir in the almond flour and salt.
  2. Roll the dough into a log about 6 to 6 1/2-inches long and chill well (1 hour in the freezer or 4 hours in the fridge).
  3. Preheat the oven to 325F. Line a large baking tray with parchment paper or a silpat liner.
  4. Slice the dough log into 12 cookies, each about 1/2-inch thick.
  5. Arrange the cookies on the prepared baking tray and chill in the freezer for 10 minutes.
  6. Bake until the cookies are golden along the outside and on the bottom, about 20 minutes.
