👨‍🍳 How To Make

💡Tips

1. Achieving the Perfect Pork Rind Powder

The base of these cookies is not your traditional flour but pork rinds.The consistency and fineness of the pork rind powder are crucial for the texture of the cookies. To achieve the perfect powder:

Use a High-Power Blender or Food Processor: Ensure that the pork rinds are ground to a consistency as close to traditional flour as possible. A high-power blender or food processor can efficiently achieve this texture.

2. Shaping The Cookies

Use a cookie scoop or a spoon to ensure that all your cookies are of uniform size. This not only helps in achieving a consistent baking time but also ensures that each cookie is perfectly cooked.

Leave enough space between each cookie on the baking sheet. Overcrowding can result in uneven baking and softer cookies.

3. Let Them Rest

Freshly baked cookies continue the cooking process even after being removed from the oven due to residual heat.

Allowing your cookies to rest on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack ensures they set properly without becoming overcooked or too brittle.

4. Honey Glaze

Applying a honey glaze to your carnivore cookies can add a delightful sheen and a sweet, nuanced flavor that complements the savory notes of the pork rinds and butter. 

Once your cookies have cooled slightly but are still warm to the touch, use a pastry brush to gently apply the honey glaze over the tops.

The warmth of the cookies will help the glaze spread evenly and soak in slightly, creating a moist layer on the surface without making the cookies soggy.

Glaze Ideas

Here are five carnivore-friendly glaze ideas that can add a delightful finish to your cookies:

1. Butter and Honey Glaze: Melt equal parts of butter and honey together until smooth. Drizzle over the cookies for a glossy finish. This glaze combines the richness of butter with the natural sweetness of honey, complementing the savory notes of the pork rind cookies.

2. Cream Cheese and Butter Glaze: Soften equal parts of cream cheese and butter, then beat them together until smooth. Add a small amount of honey (or allulose syrup) to taste, and mix until well combined. This glaze will add a creamy, tangy layer to your cookies, providing a nice contrast to their crunchy texture.

3. Heavy Cream and Vanilla Glaze: Whip heavy cream with a bit of vanilla extract (or cake batter extract as used in the cookies) until it forms soft peaks. Sweeten slightly with honey, to taste. Dollop or spread this creamy glaze over the carnivore cookies for a rich and luxurious finish.

    Simple, good, not sweet but sweet enough. I will be making them again. I think next time I’m going to try lemon colegen powder & orange extract.

    Hi! For my carnivore diet, I don’t use honey so had none on hand. But I did have swerve powdered erythritol and mixed it with granular erythritol when I didn’t have enough powdered. The result definitely satisfies my sweet tooth! But too funny how the cookies flattened out into one big sheet that I’m breaking off like peanut brittle! Lol 😂

  3. Would there be any substitute for the pork rinds?! We don’t eat pork- but I would love to have a cookie like this in hand for when we go places and there are sweets, treats etc… any suggestions or ideas for a replacement for the pork would be greatly appreciated!! 🥰
