Gluten Free Vegan Strawberry Cheesecake Cookies

Gluten Free Vegan Strawberry Cheesecake Cookies | glutenfreeifyouplease.com In anticipation for the 4th of July festivities, I decided to make a simple gluten free vegan cookie that screams summer. These vegan cheesecake cookies are loaded with fresh organic strawberries, rich vegan cream cheese and topped with a creamy blueberry glaze. A perfect treat for your summer picnics. Gluten Free Vegan Strawberry Cheesecake Cookies | glutenfreeifyouplease.com These cookies are quick and super simple to make. Any All Purpose Gluten Free Flour blend will work great for these cookies (if you are using a pre-mixed All Purpose Gluten Free Flour Mix, like Cup4Cup, you will want to omit the xanthan gum in this recipe). For my All Purpose Gluten Free Flour blend I used 1/4 cup white rice flour + 2 tablespoons, 1/4 cup brown rice flour, 1/4 cup tapioca starch, 1/4 cup potato starch and 1/2 teaspoon of xanthan gum. Gluten Free Vegan Strawberry Cheesecake Cookies | glutenfreeifyouplease.com In this recipe I used a flaxseed egg to replace the need for an actual egg. To do this you can grind 1 tablespoon of flaxseed ( I have found that coffee grinders are awesome for this) and add 3 tablespoons of warm water. Stir, and set aside in the refrigerator for it to gel up a bit. You will also want to have your vegan cream cheese ( I used Go Veggie! unflavored cream cheese) and coconut oil at room temperature. I microwaved both the cream cheese and coconut oil in the microwave for 10 seconds to speed things up. Once at room temperature, you will want to cream the coconut oil, sugar and cream cheese together.

Top with a warm gooey blueberry glaze. Enjoy!
