  • 1 ¼ C Cassava Flour 175 g
  • C Tapioca Starch
  • 1 ½ C Sugar
  • ½ teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 teaspoon Cream of Tartar
  • 1 TSP Guar Gum
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 4 OZ Cream Cheese
  • ½ C Butter Soft
  • 1 Large Egg
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1 TBS Cinnanon
  • ½ C Sugar for rolling


  • Cream the butter, cream cheese, and sugar together.
  • Add the egg and vanilla.
  • Mix in the dry ingredients until the dough comes together.
  • Allow the dough to chill for about 15 minutes. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
  • Scoop the dough into small bowls and roll into additional sugar.
  • Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake the cookies for about 12-14 minutes or until the edges are slightly golden in color
  • Allow them to cool for at least ten minutes before removing them from the pan.


  • Measure the flour with a kitchen scale to get the most consistent results. Cassava flour, in particular, can settle a lot.
  • Make a tester cookie. Depending on how you measure, your flour might not measure right. When I don’t want to pull out my kitchen scale, I will bake off one cookie to see how it reacts. If it spreads more than I want it to, I’ll add a tablespoon more flour to get a slightly thicker cookie.
  • Add more or less cinnamon to the roll the cookies into depending on your liking. You can even add ½ teaspoon to the batter for an extra cinnamon kick.
  • If your snickerdoodle cookies are flatter, chill the dough longer.
