Sea Buckthorn Snow Cookies - Updated and Nearly Vegan!

This recipe is on the recipe page. http://seaberry-hippophaerhamnoides.blogspot.com/2012/12/cooking-with-seabuckthorn-sea-berries.html   I have made some changes or alterations and it worked out so good, I wanted to share right away.

Seabuckthorn Snow Cookies

Ingredients:
1/2 cup hard Coconut oil (cool if liquified, coconut oil will be solid at temps below 70 degrees)*
4 oz.  Cream Cheese
1 cup  Cane Sugar
4 Tb Sea Buckthorn Juice
1 1/3 cups Unbleached White Flour 
2/3 cup Almond Flour*
1 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp  Salt
1/2 cup Powdered Sugar
*Note about the coconut oil and almond flour in recipes.  Coconut oil can be used 1:1 as a replacement for butter.  If you have recipe for melted butter, just melt the coconut oil.  Almond (and Chestnut Flour) can be substituted for 1/3 of the flour in baking. 

Method:
Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.
Cream together the coconut oil and  cream cheese.
Add the Sea Buckthorn juice and mix well. 
Mix dry ingredients separately and add to wet ingredients.  Just mix to combined, do not over mix.  Form into 1" balls and put on greased cookie sheet (use greased parchment paper if you have it).  
Bake for about 12 minutes.  The original recipe said 10 minutes.  Mine took at least the 12 minutes.  Maybe it was the almond flour which is "wetter" than regular flour.  Keep an eye on them.  They don't overcook too quickly.  Take them out when the tops look the slightest bit browned.  At that time the bottom of the cookies (on parchment paper) will be a perfect brown color.
Let cool for 5 minutes in pan before transferring to a rack.  Once they have cooled to lukewarm, dip the tops in confectioners sugar and shake off the excess. Make a fairly thin mixture of seaberry juice and confectioners sugar to very lightly dot the tops. 
These sea buckthon and cream cheese cookies may just the best cookies you have ever had.  I think they are, and so far, my most difficult critic (Mom) agrees :-).

    1. Thanks Craig! I would have to agree they certainly are! I think I might try using a little chestnut flour in the next batch. What fun it is to create and cook food that is so healthy and natural it is a nutriceutical!
