Pecan Crescents – Low Carb and Gluten-Free

Low Carb Pecan Crescent CookiesThis Low Carb Pecan Crescent Recipe is my attempt to recreate my father’s favourite Christmas cookie into something we can all enjoy.  And I have to say, I am pretty darn pleased with these.  They have the same soft and yet crumbly texture of the original, the same pecan flavour coming through, and yet they don’t contain an ounce of sugar or gluten.  I think, I really hope, that he’s going to love these as much as the cookies of my childhood.  He outright asked me to find a way to do them this year, as he and his wife are coming to celebrate Christmas with us.  How could I deny my old man???

This recipe was also inspired by the amazing baking gift pack I received from The Pampered Chef as part of their Virtual Holiday Cookie Swap.  It was like Christmas came early for me.  You know I love baking and let me tell you, this was packed full of great baking gear.  Even though I was given the list of what it contained ahead of time, I honestly was shocked when I opened it up.  And the best part?  They want to give the same pack to one of you!  Trust me, if you like baking, you want one of these baking bundles.  It will rock your baking world!  (Scroll down to see what’s in the baking bundle).

Gluten-Free Pecan Crescents

I couldn’t possibly use all of the items they sent in the creation of this low carb cookie recipe, but it sure was fun to try.  I used the Madagascar Vanilla in both the cookies and the glaze.  I got out the stainless steel baking sheet they sent and was impressed by the heft of it, it’s an extremely sturdy baking sheet.  I lined the sheet with their parchment paper for easy clean up (I heart parchment!).  The mini cookie scoop was perfect for getting just the right amount of dough for each cookie (why have I never owned one of these things before???).  And then I froze some of the unglazed cookies in the leakproof glass container, so that I could save enough for when my dad comes for Christmas (who am I kidding…I made a double batch!).

Pecan Crescent Cookie Recipe

The traditional version of these cookies simply has a white vanilla glaze with sprinkles, and I wanted to stick to that as much as possible.  But I’ve always wanted to try those accordion-style decorator bottles, so I couldn’t resist making up a little red glaze to drizzle over a few of the cookies.  Once again, I am the world’s worst cookie decorator so try not judge me too harshly.

Pecan Crescents - Low Carb and Gluten-Free

Yield: 40 cookies

Serving Size: 2 cookies

Ingredients

    Cookies:
  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 2 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup Swerve Sweetener or granulated erythritol
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tbsp molasses (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 25 drops stevia extract
  • Vanilla Glaze:
  • 2/3 cup powdered Swerve Sweetener or powdered erythritol
  • 6 to 8 tbsp heavy cream
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. For the cookies, preheat oven to 325F and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together almond flour, chopped pecans, coconut flour baking powder and salt.
  3. In a large bowl, beat butter with erythritol until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Beat in egg, molasses, vanilla and stevia extracts.
  4. Beat in almond flour mixture until dough comes together.
  5. Form dough into 3/4 inch balls, then roll between palms and shape into crescents.
  6. Lay on prepared baking sheets and bake 18 minutes, or until just lightly golden brown. They will not be firm to the touch, but will firm up as they cool.
  7. Remove from oven and let cool.
  8. For the glaze, whisk powdered erythritol with 1/4 cup cream and vanilla extract until smooth. Add 1 tbsp more cream at a time until a thin but spreadable consistency is achieved.
  9. Spread on cooled cookies and decorate as desired.

Notes

Serves 20 (2 cookies per serving). Each serving has 5.2 g of carbs and 2.2 g of fiber. Total NET CARBS = 3 g (minus the sprinkles, but those don't add much if used judiciously).

  1. My favorite Christmas Cookie is Norwegian Krumkaker. Delicios, thin and crispy, but unfortunatly not low carb and not gluten free. I would sooo much like to compose a recepie that is…
    Now I have liked both Facebook sites, and are following both pages on Pinterest.
    Best regards and a Merry Christmas
    Tove

  2. These look so fun… how great of you to recreate your father’s favorite treat!

    Since I don’t celebrate Christmas (or didn’t until I married Eric), I’m not sure what Christmas cookies are… but I did make roasted chestnut cookies a few years ago and fell madly in love with them. So, that’s my answer :-)

  3. Brooke Chavez says:

    Snickerdoodles – must bake Snickerdoodles every year!

  4. Shortbread cookies are my favorite!!!

  5. Chocolate chip with walnuts!!

  6. My favorites are sugar cookies! So glad several bloggers have come out with sugar free “sugar cookies” this year!

  7. My favorite cookie? What a hard one. Of course it has to be gluten free and warm from the oven. What would Christmas be without moist sugar cookies …or gooey warm chocolate chip cookies…or matrimony date bars the Canadian way? It’s way too early in the morning to be thinking cookies but my tummy is growling already. COOKIES!

    Love your FB page and have shared it with others. My cousin mentions it all the time to me. Would love to win the contest because I’m just at the beginning of my gluten free path and have so much to learn.

  8. Chocolate chip Cookies and I just found a recipe using coconut flour and they turned out great.

  9. These sound wonderful Carolyn and what a generous giveaway!! My favorite Christmas cookie just got a LC makeover at my house — http://faithfulnessfarm.blogspot.com/2012/12/sugar-free-low-carb-pistachio-cookies.html

  10. Just a personal thought from someone who loves your recipes and site, we make peanut butter kiss cookies in droves!

  11. I love the pampered chef! I’ve only thrown one party by them myself but it was so much fun and their products are great. My favorite christmas cookie is a sugar cookie, I think. Though it is hard to argue with a classic chocolate chip.

  27. Chocolate chippers. Basically a chocolate chip cookie using choppped German chocolate instead of semi sweet chips. Great childhood memories when I eat them.

  28. My favorite Christmas cookie is actually Date Balls….rice krispies, dates, coconut all rolled together with a few walnuts sprinkled in! I know dates are very high in sugar and not so great for a low carber but if you ever do a recipe makeover of that cookie…please let me know! :)

  45. My favorite low carb Christmas cookies, so far, are your Chocolate Peppermint Sandwich cookies. The peppermint filling is delicious! (the coolness from the erythritol works wonderfully with the mint!) My hubby prefers the cookies without the filling…and they are fantastic without.

    My favorite Christmas cookie/s is any cookie that I can make with my grandchildren helping!!!!! I rarely get to see them because they live in another state and just watching them laughing and giggling when they are helping Grandma Red make them puts a big ol smile on my face everytime!!!!!!

  96. My favorite Christmas cookies are Russian tea cakes, aka wedding cookies. I think your recipe will work very well for those.

  97. I made these and I must say, these Pecan Crescent cookies are by far my favorite

  98. My favorite cookie is the Peppermint Drop…..pretty too!!

  99. Wow, I don’t know my favourite.
    I’d guess spritz cookies. They are so fun to make & decorate with children.
    However, when getting fancy, or sharing with friends, I usually head to a bar cookie, as they are easier to make in a multitude in a small kitchen.

  109. Favorite Christmas cookie: My mom got a recipe from her sister’s mother-in-law (confusing) a long time ago for fruitcake cookies. Wow! I never really like fruitcake but these were different but also so colorful and I wish I had some right now!

    I have all the ingredients to make your dad’s cookies though so I’ll give those a try instead! They can be frozen without the glaze? Would they be bad frozen with the glaze?

  110. I have a recipe I love that I’ve always called Killer Cookies. They’re basically a chewy chocolate chip, pecan, oatmeal, and coconut cookie. Definitely not low carb!

  111. my favourite Christmas cookies – what my well-loved grandmother used to call bird’s nest cookies: kind of a shortbread, rolled in chopped walnuts (or was it pecans?), ruby-red jam nestled in a slight depression on top. oh my yummy. and associated with such warm memories!

Or used to, anyway! :) If you could figure out how to make a sugar-free praline (is that even possible since it’s mostly sugar?) I’d love that! This year I’m going to try a low-carb sugared pecan recipe and see if it’s a satisfying replacement.

  158. My favorite is my mother’s fruitcake cookies. I have been making them as low carb as possible for the last three years. Traditionally you soak the candied fruit in whiskey over night. These cookies are mostly pecans with a touch of fruit. I have got the flavor down pat. I’m still working on the texture. I substitute dried fruit for the candied cherries and pineapple, but finding sugar free dried fruit is a challenge.

    I love your blog, cookbooks, and recipes. Please keep them coming! Happy Holidays!

  250. Until today, Dr. Davis’ Orange Cream Cookies were our favorite low carb, gluten free cookies. I just finished a double batch of your Pecan Cresents and these take first place – my husband and I agree that we don’t think the glaze is necessary – just because it is Christmas, I’ll probably do the glaze. I also think my next batch will not be the pretty little cresent shapes – I’m planning to just use the small cookie scoop and bake. Thanks for all you do for us – love your blog!

  279. I can’t just choose one, my top 3 favorite Christmas cookies are snicker doodle, peanut butter and sugar!! Every year!!

  280. My favorite Christmas cookies are pfefferneuse. I love all types of spice cookies, but pfefferneuse are special to me because of the extra kick from the pepper.

  281. Ellen Schmidt says:

    My favorite Christmas cookie is the Mexican Wedding Cake. It’s a cookie my mom used to make at Christmas time, so I have always thought of it as a Christmas cookie. I wonder if the Pecan cookie here would taste anything like them?

  282. david carson says:

    My favorite holiday cookie has always been chocolate crinkles. My Mom has made them as far back as I can remember. I can’t imagine celebrating the holiday without them. Guess I should learn to bake so I can make HER a batch. :-)

  283. My favorite Christmas cookie is Vanillekipfel (Austrian Vanilla Crescents). Growing up, my Austrian grandmother sent us a huge box of her homemade vanillekipfel every Christmas. We always were so excited when the brown paper wrapped box from grossmama arrived. The smell was heavenly and the taste even better! These cookies are traditionally made with a cup or two of almond and/or hazelnut flours so they were very easy for me to adapt to using only nut flours. This year I am going to use Swerve for the sweetner instead of coconut sugar so my blood sugar won’t spike! Dusted with some powdered erythritol they will look just like our family’s traditional vanillekipfel.
    Your pecan crescent cookies look very scrumptious, I can hardly wait to make them.

  285. My favorite Christmas cookies are Russian Teacakes (also sometimes called Wedding Cookies). These seem to be fairly similar with the exception of being iced instead of rolled in powdered sugar. Being fairly recently diagnosed as diabetic, I really appreciate this low carb recipe!

  286. my fave cookie is anything I can safely eat now! lol…..I liked you and PC on FB and followed you both

  287. Our favorite Christmas cookies are fruitcake cookies, believe it or not! They are so rich and colorful, made with candied fruit of all flavors and colors.

  292. Rani Merens says:

    In my pre-low-carb days, my SIL gave me this recipe that became a Christmas-only standard: slice-and-bale a roll of sugar-cookie-dough into 36 cookies; stir amaretto liqueur into raspberry jam and spread a thin layer on the bottom of 18 cookies and press the another cookie bottom against the jam to make a sandwich. Melt some chocolate chips and add in a smidge of paraffin. Dip the 18 sandwiches halfway into the chocolate. I haven’t tried to replicate a LC version. I’m Liking on FB. Haven’t done Pinterest but this is an incentive to sign up and try it! P.S. I *ADORE* Pampered Chef! Best veg-peelers in the world… I actually tie one onto bridal-shower gifts! I have so many PC products in my kitchen!

  293. My favorite Christmas cookie is the Egg Nog cookie! It’s so good.

  294. Before I found out I had celiac disease…my favorite was my grama’s cutout cookies…we would bake and decorate them…I can almost still smell and imagine how wonderful they tasted. Thanks for the memories!!

    It’s so hard to pick a favorite, I love so many of them. I guess my favorite today will be chocolate filled Italian cookies. Not sure if there is another name, it’s the name on the recipe when I received it from a little Italian lady from the northside of the city where I live.

  375. My favorite cookies are traditional sugar cookies. They bring back so many wonderful childhood memories: rolling & using the cookie cutters (I use my mom-in-law’s that she gave me over 30 years ago!), the smell of them baking, decorating them with the cream cheese Christmas-y frosting (each grandchild gets a specially decorated cookie with their name on it every year) and the my most favorite part- eating them!

    My love for simple sugar cookies is profound.

  412. THIS Pecan Crescent is my favorite cookie! Truly, before I turned to low carb eating, Pecan Sandies, Crescents, Mexican Wedding cookies were my absolute favorite and I could never get enough of them! Thank you SO much for creating this low carb, gluten free version. Without the sugar, I can actually stop at two (one serving) and be content. The flavor and texture are spot on. I didn’t even make the glaze or sprinkle them with erythritol, they’re perfect as is. Thank you again and Happy Holidays!!

  413. My favorite Christmas cookie is Nut Butter Balls. It’s a type of sand tart with butter, a little flour and both almond and vanilla extract.

  414. Jennifer Clark says:

    We love OREO truffle balls. I wish I had the cookie scoop when I was rolling all them.

  415. My favorite Christmas Cookie is pinwheels. I have never actually made them, but my mom used to make them every year.

  416. My favorite Christmas cookie is a traditional cut out sugar cookie which we make every year with the kids!

  417. My fave is a sugar cookie. Nice and simple. Especially when they are shaped like snow flakes. Just really puts me in the holiday mood :)

  418. The post says this expired yesterday, but I just saw you tweet about it, so… on the off-chance it counts, here I am. :) My favorite cookies are orange cream cookies, which I found the recipe for in a Betty Crocker holiday cookie book a few years ago. They’re divine, and a great departure from all the chocolate and fudge that’s usually around.

    • It will count. I meant to have it run until tonight! I have been sick over the holidays so if I am a little spacey, forgive me. I will go adjust that now!

  424. I totally missed the contest, but have a question about the recipe. Is there a non-nut substitute for almond flour? Maybe a combination of whey protein and coconut flour? The nut flour is too much for the hubby’s system…I will take a stab at a substitute myself and let you know how it goes, but if you have a suggestion I would love to hear it.

  425. Real Vanilla Extract is NOT GLUTEN FREE. You have to use Imitation instead.

  426. What brand of liquid stevia do you use? Looking forward to making these!
