Cream Cheese Cookies

Cream Cheese Cookies 
Cream cheese adds a lovely flavour and texture to these cream cheese cookies. Baked with coconut flour they are low carb and gluten free too.
These cream cheese cookies are soft and chewy but firm up the next day after stored in the fridge. I have a cheese biscuit recipe full of butter that is melt in your mouth deliciousness so thought about making a sweet version. The key to that recipe is the butter and cheese. So, with the sweet version, butter was in! To make it extra melt in your mouth, cream cheese was added! The mixture is very soft and gooey so needs to be rolled up and left to firm up in the fridge.
Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup (56g) Coconut Flour
  • 3 tablespoons (60g) Cream cheese softened
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/2 cup (113g) Butter softened
  • 1/2 cup Erythritol or other sugar substitute
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
Instructions
  1. In a bowl, cream together the butter, cream cheese and erythritol (or sugar substitute of choice).
  2. Add the vanilla extra and egg. Beat until smooth.
  3. Add the coconut flour, baking powder and salt and beat until combined. The mixture will be sticky.
  4. Place the mixture onto a piece of wax paper (or parchment paper). Mould into a log shape, using the paper to roll out and wrap the paper around the dough and secure the ends like a Christmas cracker.
  5. Place in the fridge to firm up for at least an hour.
  6. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F degrees.
  7. Line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  8. Remove the dough from the fridge and cut into 1 cm slices.
  9. Place the slices on the baking tray.
  10. Bake for 15-18 minutes until golden.
