These Cream Cheese Cookies are my kid’s favorite thing to bake in the kitchen. They are soft and sweet, tender and delicious. These cookies are perfect for holidays – or any day that you’d like to make special!
Cream Cheese Cookies are Soft and Sweet
A side effect of having a job that keeps you in the kitchen a lot is that my kids are growing up knowing how to make their way around all kinds of food. But let’s be serious, baking cookies is something special. These Cream Cheese Cookies are so soft and sweet – truly, the texture is to die for because of the cream cheese. And they are one of my girls’ favorite reasons to get in the kitchen.
Cream Cheese makes AWESOME Cookies!
I would love to say there was a grand plan when we created the recipe for these Cream Cheese Cookies, but the truth is, I had some cream cheese in the fridge I needed to use up. Shhhh… don’t tell anyone that, okay.
Sometimes necessity really is the mother of invention – I find that is so true in the kitchen.
And there is nothing better to invent than new cookies recipes!
Cream Cheese Cookies are Perfect for Holidays and Gifts!
Something really special about baking cookies is that they make perfect gifts. It is a lot of fun to watch kids in the kitchen together baking cookies they plan to give away. It is sweet to see how proud they are.
On a high note, sometimes they want to bake these cookies for Santa too… I hear Santa likes Cream Cheese Cookies a lot!
I am trying to convince them that the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy like cookies too.
Want to Make these Cookies Really Special?
My gut instinct is always to put chocolate chips in anything resembling a cookie. But I had some butterscotch chips hanging around that might have been dragged home on a whim.
So we mixed it up – butterscotch and chocolate chip cookies made these Cream Cheese Cookies taste out of this world! You have to try them….
Right now. You have to try them right now.
