1 1/2 cups Gluten-Free Flour Blend (see below)
2 (3-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened


1 1/2 teaspoons instant coffee granules
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon gluten-free vanilla


2 tablespoons powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon gluten-free vanilla
Unsweetened cocoa, if desired
44 chocolate-covered coffee beans, if desired


Heat oven to 375°F.

Combine all crust ingredients in bowl; beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until mixture forms a dough.

Shape dough into 44 (1-inch) balls. Place 1 ball into each mini muffin pan cup; press dough onto bottom and up sides. Bake 8-10 minutes or until crusts are lightly browned. Cool 5 minutes in pans; remove to cooling racks. Cool completely.

Combine 2 tablespoons whipping cream and coffee granules in bowl; let stand 5 minutes or until coffee dissolves. Add all remaining filling ingredients; beat at medium speed until creamy.

Place 1 cup whipping cream in bowl; beat at medium speed until soft peaks form. Add powdered sugar and vanilla; continue beating until stiff peaks form.

Spoon about 2 teaspoons filling into each crust; top with whipped cream mixture. Sprinkle with unsweetened cocoa; top with chocolate-covered cocoa bean, if desired.

Recipe Comments & Reviews

I was under the impression that instant coffee does in fact contain gluten. I am gluten intolerant and read it somewhere, so have avoided it altogether. Regular coffee on the other hand doesn't. Can you tell me if I am wrong?
