  • If your dough feels too soft to handle, simply form a ball, wrap it in clingfilm and cool it in the fridge for 20 minutes (or in the freezer for 10). 
  • Form small balls in your hands and place on a baking sheet lined with baking paper. 
  • Press your thumb into the middle of each ball to form an indentation.

Notes

The cookies are VERY SOFT when they come out of the oven. Let them cool down completely and they will firm up. 
You can use any sugar free jam in this recipe. For a super-quick version, you could even simply mash a handful of fresh raspberries with a sprinkle of chia seeds or xanthan gum. 
I calculated the nutrition for 1 cookie. My batch made 20 in total. Depending on how big a treat you feel, I'd say 1-2 cookies should do the trick.
