Gluten-Free Cream Cheese Cookies
My grandma's cream cheese cookies have never tasted so good. It's been years since I've eaten her gluten-containing cookies, but my mom tells me these are just as good, and perhaps just the teeniest bit better. All I know is I no longer feel like I'm missing out. If you want a dairy-free version, click here.
1/2 cup cream cheese
1/2 cup butter or Spectrum Organic Palm Shortening
1/2 cup granulated sugar*
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 tablespoons whole psyllium husks
1/3 cup coconut flour (40 grams)
1/3 cup white rice flour (52 grams)
1/3 cup tapioca starch (40 grams)
1/2 teaspoon fine grain sea salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
*The above photos were made with regular cane sugar, but you can also use coconut palm sugar or another granulated sugar. The flavor and color will be different, but they will still be delicious!
Yield: This batch made 17 cookies of varying shapes and sizes.
