Blend together the flour mix into the batter. It is not a typical cookie dough consistency, when finished baking the cookies are soft like a cake.
Line baking sheet with parchment paper and spoon small rounds onto the sheet I use a mini ice cream scoop.
Bake for 15-18 mins. Let them cool for a few before removing.
For the icing when cooled:
½ block of cream cheese or 4 oz room temp
