We suggest using our new, sugar-free sweetener blend, S'WEEET! for our cookie recipes. It makes the best cookies!
1. It's best to use a kitchen scale whenever possible. If you don't yet own a scale, these recipes are based upon 'lightly packed' measuring cups, so whether you use the 'dip and sweep' method of measuring or the 'spooning into the cup' method, always gently press down on the mix in the measuring cup and add more to fill the cup, as necessary. One cup of Bakery Mix equals approx. 125g.
2. We suggest baking off one cookie before baking the entire batch. This way, if you use substitutions (ie different sweeteners) or you don't weigh your ingredients, you can adjust the dough with a tablespoon more mix if the cookie is too flat, or add a little more soft butter or 1-2 tsp of liquid if the cookie doesn't spread enough. See below for *Sweetener Substitutions.
2 1/2 C MULTI-USE BAKERY MIX (313g)
1 1/4 C S'WEEET! Sweetener Blend (175g) *see below for substitutions
1/2 C Soft or melted Butter (112g)
3 T Sour Cream (45g)
3 T Heavy Cream (45g)
2 Eggs (100g)
1-2 t Almond Extract
1-2 t Vanilla Extract
Makes about 10 Big Cookies
1. Pre-heat your oven to 350°F.
2. In a medium size bowl, combine the sweetener with our Bakery Mix.
3. In another bowl combine the butter, eggs, sour cream and extracts and whisk until combined.
4. Combine the wet and dry ingredients together and let the dough rest in the refrigerator until firm enough to handle.
5, Scoop out portions of dough onto a greased or lined sheet pan (roll into balls if the dough is firm enough to handle). If dough is quite cold, press down slightly on the top. NOTE: The thickness of the cream and sour cream will affect how much the dough spreads. Add an extra T if you want more spread.
6. Bake about 13-15 minutes.
*SWEETENERS VARY tremendously and will affect the final outcome of ALL baked goods.
We suggest using our new sweetener blend, S'WEEET!, real sugar or a substitute such as Swerve (IMO+ Erythritol) Lakanto's Baking Blend, or Mrs. Jones blend (which contains sugar). If you prefer to bake with a liquid sweetener, you will likely need to an add an additional 1-4 T Bakery Mix. Allulose and kabocha-based sweeteners (such as Bocha Sweet) will make baked goods very soft and not crispy. Erythritol can make them firm and more crumbly.
*SWEETENER SUBSTITUTIONS: To substitute S'WEEET! for Allulose, Erythritol or Bocha Sweet increase the Multi-Use Bakery Mix to 2 1/2-3 C (313-375g) and press the cookie dough balls down with your palm before baking. Cool completely before moving. To substitute S'WEEET! for real Sugar use 3/4 C (the weight is about the same as 1 C of S'WEEET! 140g) and increase the Bakery Mix by 1-2 T.
