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
50g brown sugar
few drops of vanilla extract
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. 🌈😊
