A cake-like cookies with frosting: What could be better? The tanginess of the cream cheese  frosting is the perfect balance to the mildly sweet butter cookie. They are just as good on their own, sans frosting, along with a warm cup of coffee or a chilled cup of coconut milk.

Butter Cookies
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl whisk egg white and softened butter.
  4. Add almond flour, vanilla, sweetener and salt to bowl; mix well.
  5. Freeze for 10-15 minutes.
  6. Using a tablespoon measuring spoon or small melon ball scooper, scoop out small balls of
    dough; place them on the baking sheet about 2 inches apart.
  7. Gently place another sheet of parchment paper on top of dough balls.
  8. Using the bottom of a water glass or mason jar, gently press down on each ball of dough
    until it flattens out a little. Do not smash too thin. They should be about 1/4 inch in
    thickness. If you're using cookie cutters, now is the time to cut them!
  9. Bake for 15-20 minutes.

    * We enjoy these cookies best when they're slightly under cooked and still a little soft. If you
    prefer your cookies on the crunchier side then wait until the edges turn golden brown
    before removing them from the oven.

Cream Cheese Frosting
  1. In a large mixing bowl combine butter and cream cheese with an electric mixer.
  2. Whip on high until slightly fluffy.
  3. Add vanilla, sweetener and food coloring; continue to blend well until well incorporated.
  4. Spread a thin layer of frosting onto each cookie.
  5. Store in the fridge until ready to eat.
