Cheese Rings

20160825_143756

During the trails and errors of learning Low Carb cooking, I find out a lot of different ways to prepare certain dishes to make them BETTER, that’s a good thing! This is one of them, I previously posted this as Cheese Straws. This is slightly different and I found that there IS a difference with flour used for low carb healthy cooking.

 

In this recipe I use Super Fine Almond Flour, in the last I used Almond Flour/Meal. There is a difference, its fine to use either, but I find the Super Fine Almond Flour makes a better dish were you would normally use reg. Flour.

In your Food Processor or Mixing Bowl add all ingredients. Blend on Dough setting until all Ingredients are mixed well.  If your using a Regular mixing Bowl, Mix well with Fork first and then switch to Large Spoon, try to get the ingredients mixed well.

Next grab your cookie press, and load up. My Press is super inexpensive, thinking of starting a Go Fund me page to get a nicer one, just kidding 🙂 I ..do seriously need a better one, but this little guy has done a good job for me.

Squeeze your Cookies/Rings out onto Parchment covered Cookie Sheet. Don’t make them too big/thick, you may need to practice a bit.

Place into your Pre-Heated (300 dg) oven, cooking times may very with each oven, should be done in 15 to 18 min. Keep an eye on these cute little guys.

Ta Da!

This batch will make 48 + if done to the right size. They keep for about 4 days after that they are not as fresh and tasty. (my opinion only). If you want to 1/2 this recipe just cut all Ingredients in Half. Easy Pease! 

Place on Cooling parchment before sealing in container or Zippy Bag. Let Cool Complete!

These are great for a party, or upcoming Fall Holidays, or just a quick snack. Enjoy Guys!
