Personally, I prefer crispy cookies. But I have received requests for these pillowy-soft keto cream cheese cookies so, here it is. Surprisingly, I can get used to these melt-in-the-mouth cookies particularly with the tanginess from the lemon juice which I prefer over vanilla extract but the choice is yours. And I especially love them straight out of the fridge or freezer – so good ! Overall, I like the savory, sweet and tangy taste with a creamy texture.
Normally, I would not use coconut flour for crispy cookies but since these are soft cookies, it is really suitable. On the other hand, the almond flour version is pretty good too and yields slightly more servings.
