Cream Cheese Cookies: A Crunchy Sweet Treat!

Print recipe

Have you ever heard of Ice Box Cookies? They are a type of cookie in which the dough is made and rolled into a log shape, and then it’s refrigerated until the dough is firm. I love this recipe because you can make the dough in advance, and when you want fresh baked cookies, you can slice and bake one or two cookies and save the rest for another day, or you can make the whole batch at once. They are sweet, creamy, and crunchy. Enjoy with a glass of almond milk or a cup of coffee or tea.

While this a simple recipe to make, be sure to take your cream cheese out of the fridge to soften a couple of hours before you are going to use it. You don’t want lumpy cream cheese in your dough! Also, the dough does have to chill for an hour before it’ll be ready to bake.

Begin by whipping together the butter and Lakanto sweetener using a stand mixer or hand mixer until it’s light and fluffy. Mix in the cream cheese until smooth, then add egg and vanilla and mix until they are fully incorporated.

Next, add the almond flour and coconut flour and mix until a crumbly dough forms.

Lay a piece of plastic wrap down on a flat surface and scoop the dough onto it. Using your hands, roll the dough out into a 6-inch long log. Wrap it in plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.

Now preheat the oven to 350 degrees and prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Take the dough out of the fridge and slice it into Ā½ inch rounds. Evenly place the cookies on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes until the cookies begin to brown.

Remove the cookie sheet from the oven and allow the cream cheese cookies to cool completely before serving. You’ll have 12 cookies to enjoy throughout the week!

    Thank you for all your recipes and information! I used your calculator and noticed the calorie deficit for weight loss. Did you count calories from the beginning or only focus on net carbs? Thank you!
