Heart Pressed Release Party!

Heart Pressed by Melissa Wardwell: Release Party with cookies!!

I love cookies. It’s a well-known fact around our house. Low carb white chocolate macadamia nut cookies.
Keto friends!
Low carb friends too!
And anyone else who’s interested.
I had to make a recipe. I’ve baked many, many keto cookies and this recipe I created is by far my favorite.
I can’t make big batches of cookies. Well, I can, but then I eat them all because…(eh, you don’t want that long of a story). Needless to say, I have to make cookies in small batches. This makes 8 small cookies.


1/2 cup almond flour
1/2 tsp gelatin powder (makes cookies chewy. Can be left out.)
1 egg
3TBSP butter (room temperature! Do not heat it in the microwave. It’ll throw everything off.)
1 TBSP Pyure (if you use a different sweetener, you will need to adjust amount. Pyure is twice as sweet as most others)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup Lily’s sugar free white chocolate chips
1/4 cup chopped macadamia nuts

Preheat oven to 350°
Mix almond flour, gelatin, egg, butter, Pyure, and vanilla.
Batter will be thick! To the point you’re going to think you’re doing something wrong and be tempted to throw in some extra liquid. Resist the urge!
Once batter is well combined, add white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts.
Stir some more.
Spoon onto parchment paper or cooking mat lined cookie sheet.
Bake for 10 minutes, or until done.
This type of white chocolate chip melts to almost nothing in the oven. Do not despair. It turns into the most delicious, gooey caramel consistency.
If you’re desperate for actual chips to remain in the cookie, add a few on top of the cookies about 8 minutes into the baking process.
Let them cool, if you can.
They’re even better the next day.

About Heart Pressed…

In case you haven’t heard what Heart Pressed is about…Here is the synopsis:
Crushes are great for grapes, wine, and romance—not so great for hearts.
The Sweetheart Festival, an Elnora Island institution, has sparked more than a few romances over the years, but who would have thought it would light a fire in two hearts from two of the island’s oldest families. When Amara Martin and Dante Greco meet, sparks fly that may ignite more than romance.
Two wineries, old feuds, generations of traditions.
Seeing the attraction at Amara and Dante’s chance meeting, Beth Stevens and Scott Anderson join forces to do a little matchmaking, not realizing the pressure it would bring to both households and their own hearts. The new couple must decide if they will adhere to tradition or break free from expectations and choose love. Pressure on every side threatens a love that hasn’t yet had a chance to ripen—for both Amara and Dante as well as for Beth and Scott.
In this “forbidden love” novel, Heart Pressed continues the Elnora Island romances of the Independence Islands Series featuring five islands, six authors, and a boatload of happily-ever-afters.
