How to make Blueberry Cream Cheese Cookies?

Directions

  1. Combine water, sweetener and blueberries in a saucepan. Smash the blueberries down with a spatula and soft boil until syrup is formed. Next place the syrup into a food processor to achieve a smooth consistency.
  2. In a large bowl, combine almond flour, sweetener, cream cheese, and melted butter with an electric mixer and whisk until the mixture is well combined.
  3. Make cookie dough balls about the size of a golf ball, place them on a baking sheet, cookie sheet, or parchment paper and use the palm of your hands to press down. Make an indent using your thumb and place from blueberry sauce inside. I recommend slightly overfilling just enough to create a mound but not over-spilling. The cookie will expand as it bakes, so the center will as well. Slightly overfilling will compensate for this.
  4. Bake at 325 F for 16-20 minutes or until the bottom edges start to slightly brown.
  5. Very important, once done, place on a cooling rack and wait at least 10 minutes to cool the cookie prior to handling. Handling the cookies without properly cooling them will results in crumbling cookies.

Pro Tip

Quickly cool the cookies placing them in the freezer for 5 minutes. The cookies must be cooled before handling because the cream cheese needs to cool to hold the cookies together.

  1. Do you have a complete list of the nutritional values for the cream cheese blueberry cookies?

    • LowCarbingAsian

      Hi Tami! Unfortunately, we don’t have the other nutritional facts. Since we use a lot of Asian ingredients in our recipes, the calculators used are notoriously inaccurate when tallying up those numbers. So we don’t run the app for any of our recipes.

  2. Brandy Simmons

    Is a serving one cookie ?
    This is the best keto cookie I’ve ever had!

  3. Any tips for using coconut flour instead of almond flour?

    I’m guessing I’d need to add more cream cheese to account for the absorbency of coconut flour but I’m not sure how much.

    Thanks!

    • LowCarbingAsian

      Hey Chris! Honestly, this recipe would be super tricky to do since it’s already a very delicate ratio as is.

      But if you insist, I would say to start with a 1/4 of flour that the recipe calls for since coconut flour is so dense compared to almond flour.

      The cream cheese is intended to be the binder, so I don’t know how much ‘absorbency’ it would add. I would say you’d probably have to add extra butter and an egg for absorbency/extra binding properties.

      Again, we never made it this way so would probably require quite a bit of testing to get the correct ratios. Hope that helps and good luck!

  4. Thanks for these delicious cookies! I had some leftover lemon curd from a cake & used that as the filling. The cream cheese kept the cookies soft & almost melt in your mouth like shortbread. Served them to non keto friends & they loved them. This is a keeper!

  5. Mika Nishimura

    Loved these! So good. My kids living on the east coast are demanding them. Do you think they will withstand a few days in priority shipping?

    • LowCarbingAsian

      So glad you liked them Mika! As long as they are stored/shipped at room tempeture, they should hold for at least 7-10 days.

  6. can these be frozen?
    btw I added some xanthan gum & baking powder, less crumbly
