Vanilla or Lemon Filling

Vanilla or Lemon Filling


I like to make this filling a little different by adding some finely chopped strawberries instead of the lemon juice and zest. It gives a lovely pink hue and a really fresh taste too!


  • 125g cream cheese, softened 
  • 50g unsalted butter, softened 
  • 30g Perfect Sweet xylitol 
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract or
  • 1 tsp fresh lemon juice and finely grated zest of 1 lemon 


  • Beat cream cheese, butter and xylitol until smooth. 
  • Mix in vanilla extract or lemon juice and zest. Taste and adjust sweetness.
  • A little beetroot powder can be added to make a pretty pink filling. 
  • Sandwich between 2 cookies and serve..
