      Hi there. Sorry for the delay but we just got that clarified on the site. Thanks for reading and hope you like them! Oops I see the calories aren’t there. We’ll try to get those in today!

    Absolutely love your creative idea with almond crescent cookies! As you know I made it a short while ago and it was lovely! Thx, Adrienne for sharing!

    I love these cookies.
    And I have a question.
    I cut the xylitol almost in half and they were still a little sweet for my tastes.
    As a result of cutting the xylitol the cookies were a little crumbly.
    I want to cut it even more . I wondering if you can suggest a substitute binder for me so that cookies aren’t so crumbly.

      Thank you! This is a tough one. Reducing sugar too much in cookies will affect them. Sugar is hydroscopic so it draws water to itself and that is why the cookies are crumbly now. I wouldn’t try to make them w/ less sweetener. You could chill the dough for 30 minutes before baking which might help some. I don’t have any other thoughts at present but I can ask around. Maybe add some coconut flour? Just a guess.
