     Let it Snow, let it snow, let it snow!  The best part of Winter is the Sugar Apple Snowflake Cookies!  If you want a fun afternoon craft project, then cozy up and put your apron on... it will be snowing cookies before you know it!  This makes 14 cookies, each one is 93 calories, 3g net carbs and 10g protein.

1 jumbo Egg

About a cup of Cream Cheese Frosting (recipe below)
Food Coloring of your choice
Sugar Pearls, if desired, for garnish

     Blend all ingredients in Food Processor, ( except frosting, food coloring and sugar pearls).  Batter may be VERY STICKY, so may need to grease your hands with Coconut Oil.  Drop by 14 equal circles onto Silpat lined cookie sheet and pat down.  Bake at 375  for 5 minutes, may appear to still be wet but will continue to cook as they cool.  While baking, add desired amount of food coloring to 14 Tablespoons Frosting.  When cookies have cooled, spread each cookie with a Tablespoon of Frosting.  Pipe a snowflake with remaining white frosting and dot with sugar pearls at the tip of the snowflakes.  Enjoy  :)
