Recipe adapted from Vegan Yum Yum

  • 1/2 Avocado, mashed
  • 120 g 0.1% Cream cheese
  • 120 g Sugar
  • 2 tbsp Lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp Poppy seeds
  • 230 g All purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp Baking soda
  1. Line 2-3 baking trays with paper. Cream butter, mashed avocado, cream cheese, and sugar together. Add lemon juice and poppy seeds, and beat until light and fluffy.
  2. Add in flour, baking soda and mix until incorporated. Fill your piping bag fitted with a star tip half full with cookie batter and pipe out cookies onto the prepared trays. Alternatively you can use a cookie gun to press any desired patterned cookies.

I have to admit, at first read of the title, I was like no way! But I had to click and check these out. They look very cute and I may have to be brave and try them! It would be so out of the box from our normal cookie selection.

I see people baking more and more with avocado and i does seem a natural for a creamy filling - and ideal with the cream cheese.They are so pillowy and dreamy and just plain pretty.

These cookies must get the gold medal for good looks! I would never guess you used avocado in the batter! since avocado are so healthy to eat and so nutritious, I say it is a genius idea!

A Canadian Foodie 6/12/10 21:55

Where ever do you get all these ideas. Avacado in cookies - not such a far stretch, really, but I would have never thought of it. What surprised me is that there is still cream cheese and butter. I would have thought the avocado might be replacing a fat. No doubt they are deadly!

I'll admit, I had my doubts when I read the title of this post, but I'm convinced that these would be quite tasty. I've used avocado in ice cream, so I'm not sure why I would doubt it's success in a baked good. I like how formed them with a pastry bag.

Angie-these avocado creme cheese cookies are not only pretty, but must taste fantastic. Never heard of a cookie made with avocado, and not look totally green...although they would be perfect if they would be green, for Christmas, or St. Patrick's day...just a thought!
Wow, so impressing and genuine...only, by no other, than you, Angie!

Now these seem interesting. Like a cross between savory and sweet? At least it has elements of both. I've seen chocolate avocado cupcakes, but not cookies like these before. I think the use of avocado really is unique. Nice post.
