*Vegan butter works instead of coconut oil within the cookie portion solely. It contributes an excessive amount of taste to the filling.
*Cassava flour sub: 1 cup (160 g) Minimalist Baker Gluten-Free Flour Mix works properly instead of the three/4 cup (96 g) cassava flour, however it requires chilling the dough for 10-Quarter-hour on the finish of step 2. Different gluten-free blends (together with our DIY mix), may also work, however we propose evaluating the consistency of the dough to the pictures and including extra flour if wanted.
