Gluten-Free Rounds with Blackberry Cream Cheese Frosting
For the perfect gluten-free dessert, try our Walkers Shortbread Gluten-Free Rounds topped with a dollop of blackberry cream cheese frosting and the last berries of summer!
Whether you’re trying out a gluten-free diet, have a celiac gluten sensitivity, or have a wheat allergy, you can enjoy these easy to make, bright and berry-ful treats in the comfort of your own kitchen.
Here’s what you need to get started:
- 1 box Walkers Pure Butter Shortbread Gluten-Free Rounds
- 1 cup fresh blackberries
- 8 ounces full-fat block cream cheese, softened to room temperature
- 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
- 3 cups confectioners’ sugar
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
Since we’re making a cream cheese frosting variation, it’s important to use block cream cheese, not cream cheese spread!
Once you’ve gathered all the ingredients, you’re ready to get started.
Puree the fresh blackberries:
- Puree 1/2 cup – 2/3 cup fresh blackberries in a small food processor.
- Push them through a fine-mesh strainer to rid the seeds.
Make the blackberry frosting:
- In a large bowl using a handheld or stand mixer fitted with a paddle or whisk attachment, beat the cream cheese and butter together on high speed until smooth and creamy.
- Add confectioners’ sugar, vanilla, blackberries puree, and salt.
- Beat on low speed for 30 seconds, then switch to high speed and beat for 2 minutes.
Once the blackberry frosting is ready, lay out your cookies and spread a dollop of blackberry frosting on top of each one. Garnish with remaining berries and your new favorite dessert is complete! You can also try this recipe with our regular shortbread rounds.
We love how light, soft, and creamy this cream cheese frosting is, with just enough of the delicious blackberry flavor.
