Easy Keto Dessert - Cream Cheese Cookies
(recipe credit Wholesome Yum - thank you!)
Cookies are tough. Flour. No flour. Eggs. No eggs. Bake. No bake.
These are the first cookies that I've made that actually have the consistency of "regular" cookie dough.
I think these might be good with a bit of peanut butter. Hmmm..... I might have to try that.
I made a batch of these and they were gone in one night. That's what happens with a house full of teens and tweens!
I tried 3 different "toppings" which were not part of the original recipe. I tried a single dark, sugar-free chocolate chip, another with cinnamon, and the last with powered erythritol.
The consensus was the powdered erythritol was the best! I happen to think so too.
These were super easy to make too which is always a bonus in my house!
Let's get to it!
- 2 ounces softened cream cheese
- 4 Tablespoons softened butter
- 3/4 cup erythritol
- 1 egg white
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 3 cups almond flour
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
cinnamon, powdered erythritol, and/or dark, sugar-free chocolate chips
The fun part:
(recipe credit here (Wholesome Yum))
Preheat oven to 375.
Grease cookie sheet with coconut oil.
Add butter, cream cheese, and erythritol in medium bowl. Beat with hand mixer until fully creamed.
Add egg white, vanilla, and salt. Blend a bit more.
Lastly, add flour 1 cup at at time and blend well.
Roll into small balls and line cookie sheet in 3 rows.
Flatten lightly with a spoon.
Cook for 15 minutes. Let cool on cooling rack. If you want to add toppings, do so when warm.
Play around! I sprinkled some with cinnamon, some with powdered erythritol and put a sugar-free chocolate chip on others!
