Sweet and tender sugar cookies with wonderfully crisp edges, filled with Happy Days Goat Cheese Spread, cranberries and almonds.
  • ⅓ cup dried cranberries
  • ¼ cup roughly chopped almonds
Cream cheese icing
  1. Preheat the oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicon baking mat. Set aside.
  2. Cream oil, cream cheese and sugar in a large bowl.
  3. Mix in egg and vanilla, set aside.
  4. Sift all dry ingredients.
  5. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix to combine.
  6. Add dried cranberries and chopped almonds.
  7. Then, spoon mixture onto the prepared baking sheet one heaping tablespoon at a time. Be sure to leave at least 1.5-inches between each cookie to allow room to grow.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for 12-14 minutes, until the edges are golden. Remove from the oven, allow to sit for 1 minute, then transfer to a wire rack to cool.
  9. While the cookies are cooling, prepare the frosting by mixing all frosting ingredients in a medium-sized bowl. Add frosting to a piping bag and pipe over the cookies once their completely cooled.

Coconut oil or other baking oils like butter can be used in place of grape seed oil. For the brown sugar, coconut sugar or demerara sugar can be used as a replacement if you’re watching your sugar intake and fructose rating of sugar. For a healthier powdered sugar, grind demerara or coconut sugar in your coffee grinder and use it as you would powdered white sugar.
