This was so simple and was done using an immersion blender and a toaster oven! I’ve found a million ways to use my Cassava Butter Cookies or my Nut’n Butter Than Almond Cookies. Besides being the tastiest cookies around, they make the PERFECT crust for that delicious pie or for my Luscious Coconut Lemon Bars. I usually double the recipe (when on the boat or our RV I triple it) and freeze portions for when I am ready to create something ingenious! This is it. So tasty and with a drizzle of Coconut Whipped Cream it will remind you of sunny days and wispy clouds!
