Directions

1. To make the cream cheese peanut butter cookies: Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Cream together butter, cream cheese, and peanut butter with a whisk or an electric mixer.

2. Add sugar and beat for 1 minute. Add egg and beat to combine. Add vanilla extracts and beat the dough until combined. Add in baking powder and the flour progressively, mixing to combine.

3. Once incorporated, refrigerate the dough for at least an hour, covered.

4. Preheat your oven to 375ºF (190ºC). The dough can be sticky so dust your hands with flour to roll out 1-2 inch balls. Arrange the balls on the prepared baking sheet. Gently flatten the balls, using a fork. Don’t flatten too much, the peanut butter and cream cheese cookies won’t puff up otherwise.

5. Bake the cream cheese peanut butter cookies for 9-11 minutes. Remove the cookies from the oven when you see the underside edges turning golden. This might vary for your oven, so watch these cookies carefully. Allow cooling down on a wire rack and dust the cream cheese peanut butter cookies with icing sugar, if you like. Enjoy!

Tips for the cream cheese peanut butter cookies recipe

  • Make sure to use natural/organic peanut butter that doesn’t have any added sugar.
  • Do not use light, fat-free, or whipped cream cheese because your cookie dough will become runny and spread when baking.
  • Keep in mind that the dough does need to be refrigerated for at least an hour. This will help the cream cheese peanut butter cookies keep their shape and puff up slightly when baking.
  • The balls of dough can end up sticky but they totally worth it! Dampen your hands before rolling and wash them up if they get too caked with the cookie dough.

How and How Long to Store the Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Cookies
