Helpful Recipe Tips

  • Be mindful of the type of granulated sweetener you use. I say this because some sweeteners produce an aftertaste. So, to avoid that strong cooling effect mainly cause by erythritol I suggest allulose or a monk fruit sweetener.
  • I use vanilla extract and lemon extract to boost the lemon flavor but to also calm down the artificial taste. Using a teaspoon of lemon extract will make a very strong artificial taste, but some don't mind that.
  • Zest the entire lemon and make sure not to go too far down to prevent the bitter flavor. If you don't have a lemon you can skip this but it brings a true lemon essence
  • For thick and chewy cookies don't flatten cookies too much when you press them down
