Add dry ingredient mixture to processor and process again until dough is well mixed.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper (not wax) and spay liberally with coconut oil spray. Drop dough by large rounded spoonfuls onto prepared baking pan until 15 cookies are formed. Spray the back of a spoon, and press each ball flat into a cookie shape.
Bake for 15-18 minutes until firm to the touch (these are soft baked cookies- they are done when you can touch the middle and it feels firm and stable- it won't be "hard") Once slightly cooled, remove to a cookie cooling rack and allow to cool completely.
While cookies are baking, whip up your FROSTING- Add softened cream cheese to a blender and blend until smooth. Add in all other ingredient, and blend until smooth. Chill Frosting in fridge until ready to frost cookies. Once cookies have cooled, evenly frost each cookie. Store in the fridge and enjoy!!
