Cream Cheese Snickerdoodles

Now here’s a cookie recipe for you! My cream cheese sugar cookie recipe (found here) is the most viewed recipe on my blog. With that said I thought I would try out adding cream cheese to a different type of cookie! I found a recipe on Pinterest for these cream cheese snickerdoodles. I only made minor changes to the original, and it turned out fabulous! This is a soft, thick, and delicious cookie!

Ingredients: (makes around 3.5 dozen cookies)

  • 2 sticks of salted butter, softened (1 cup)
  • 3 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1 and 1/2 cups of sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 2 teaspoons of cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons of cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 3 and 1/4 cups of all purpose flour

Topping: (mix in a separate bowl to dip the cookie dough balls into later)

  • 1/3 cup of sugar
  • 1 heaping teaspoon of cinnamon

Directions:

  1. Mix butter, cream cheese, and sugar in you mixer until light and fluffy.
  2. Add in the egg and vanilla and mix well.
  3. In a separate bowl mix together the salt, cinnamon, cream of tartar, baking soda, and flour.
  4. Slowly pour the flour mixture into your butter mixture until well blended.
  5. Roll cookie dough into 1 inch balls and place onto parchment paper.
  6. Dip the cookie dough balls into the cinnamon/sugar topping mixture listed under ingredients.
  7. Bake at 350 for 6-8 minutes (depending on the size). Don’t overbake as you want these cookies to remain soft!
