    These are truly the best cookies I have ever tasted. My husband loves them so much he took a batch of them to his work to share with everyone.

    These cookies are absolutely AMAZING! They taste like sugar cookies or vanilla cake.
    My partner has diabetes, so I am always looking for low carb recipes- I substituted stevia for the coconut sugar and reduced the maple syrup to 2 tbsp. I also added WW flour instead of the tapioca as that was what I had on hand.
    I made them “for him” but found that I had eaten most of them myself! These will become a great go-to dessert in our house.
    They freeze very well.
    Thanks Olivia for another fantastic recipe!

    The most delicious cookies EVER. I literally used 1/4 the amount of coconut sugar & maple syrup, and added the dry ingredient mix ONLY until they came together, not using the full amount. These were the most satisfying ‘vanilla butter cookie’ gems I’ve ever tasted. I am a cashew butter freak but am inspired to try this with peanut butter and tahini as well. I ADORE your blog♥️✨

    1. Ahhh I’m so happy to hear you enjoyed the cookies!!! And thank you for the kind encouragement and support – means so much! I always appreciate hearing when modifications work out so I can pass that info along to others! Definitely going to try a peanut butter and a tahini version ASAP!
