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.


Once firmed up, you just slice the dough and bake! Voila, a delicious batch of low carb cream cheese cookies. This cookie dough could be made in advance. Perhaps keep a roll of dough in the fridge for cookie emergencies!

These cream cheese cookies would be delicious with an additional flavour. I think lemon or orange would be a great flavour choice.
