Low Carb Giant Ginger Cookies. I have often wondered why it seems so difficult to get a crispy low carb cookie and now I know-it is. This is my first attempt at making cookies with Carbalose flour so I have no basis of comparison but I know this: there is no almond flour and no coconut flour. Don’t know for sure but this must be some kind of secret. Anyway, these are delicious & crispy and every once in a while, crispy is good.
They say true confessions are good for the soul so here goes another one: I did not have the right Just Like Sugar. I had the Baking but not the Granular since I don’t use much of it and there is a difference so…use the right product for the job…but the taste-ooh la la.
Down below in the notes I said I would be testing another recipe using these cookies and it didn’t take me long to come up with these Ginger Cheesecake Tarts
All my other Carbalose Recipes are listed at the bottom of the Carbalose Informational Page.
As I am a Type II diabetic, all recipes on this website are low carb and diabetic friendly.

- Use a 2” scoop or make 15 2” balls and place evenly on a parchment papered cookie sheet pan. I have a sheet pan that I could fit all 15 cookies on. Using a flat disc (I used my Norpro pounder) to flatten the balls to about ¼'. Carefully peel from pounder and place back on pan.
- Sprinkle on last ⅓ C Just Like Sugar on cookies. Best to use the granular.

- Based on the crumb of these cookies I'm going to make a prediction here. I think if you ground them and added enough melted butter, they would make a kick butt base for a cheesecake or anything else you needed a cookie base for. I will be testing this in the future but...you can test it now...if you want.
