Almond/Cheese Rounds-Low Carb

READY IN: 14mins
Top Review by Dimpi

Original 11/26/11 - I tried making a half batch of this today and was quite impressed. It's a great base recipe to tweak to individual tastes. I added some cayenne and skipped the salt (sodium-restricted diet). Next time I would add more garlic powder, some dried herbs and some old bay seasoning. I would also melt the butter and increase the quantity slightly. Might try replacing the egg with a tiny amount of broth or water or cream. 10 stars for ease and speed of prep. It literally takes a minute to put together and about 12 min to bake.Thanks a lot for posting the recipe! Update - I now make this regularly and have made some changes based on trial and error. I use half blanched almond flour and half whole almond meal. This reduces the net carbs for the entire recipe by 4g. I add whatever spices/herbs that catch my fancy and cheddar monterey jack cheese mix. Instead of egg, I add enough chicken broth to moisten and mix the dough with my fingers until it comes together in a ball. I make 8 balls (approx 2.28g carb each) from each batch, flatten between my palms and bake as directed. It holds together very well and tastes great.
