Gluten free almond cream cheese maple syrup and raisin cookies.

β€’19 Replies

Hi everyone,

I really like cream cheese and sometimes eat it on toast with honey as it has a cheese cake flavour but not so rich. I bought some cream cheese and decided to just substitute cream cheese for butter and I added 1/3 less sugar and mixed flaked almonds with maple syrup to glaze the top.

Here's the recipe:

150g plain white GF flour

60g ground almonds

180g tub cream cheese

1 egg

50g brown sugar

few drops of vanilla extract

150g raisins

For the glaze:

2 Table spoons Maple syrup and 50g flaked almonds

Whiz everything up in a food processor and spread into a baking tray and bake for approx 25 mins 175C until cooked through.

The ground almond and maple syrup topping is lovely and compliments the cookie and I think with this lockdown we deserve some comfort food thats also nutritious.

Thats it enjoy your evening folks and I've been baking more so please share what you've been baking. But most importantly stay safe and well. 🌈😊

Mmm.. they look intriguing and tasty Jerry. I'm like you and baking much more than usually. I made cheese cookies today. It's a crazy simple recipe, just some butter, flour, grated extra mature cheddar cheese and a little dried red pepper flake, just whizzed up together in the food processor, rolled into small balls and flattened a little then baked in a hot oven for 15-20 minutes. I guess if you piped them into lengths, they'd be cheese straws! πŸ˜€
