Cream Cheese Snickerdoodle Cookie Dough

Cream Cheese Snickerdoodles are comparatively easy cookies to make. The dough can simply be made with an electrical mixer (I don’t suggest mixing by hand as a result of it’s necessary that you simply cream the butter, cream cheese, and sugars collectively) and requires just a few minutes of chilling. Nevertheless, I do have a number of key suggestions I wished to share with you earlier than you start.


  • Don’t pass over the cream of tartar! That is what provides Snickerdoodles their signature tangy taste and it’s a should for ANY Snickerdoodle recipe!
  • This cookie dough wants to relax for at the least 30 minutes. You don’t need the dough to be so sticky that it sticks to your arms greater than it sticks to itself, so if you happen to discover that the dough continues to be too sticky after 30 minutes, return it to the fridge for one more 15 minutes or so.
  • To maintain these cookies comfortable, be sure you don’t over-bake them. Whenever you take away them from the oven the sides ought to be set and even frivolously golden brown, however the facilities could seem barely under-done. Enable your cream cheese snickerdoodles to chill utterly on the baking sheet, the place they’ll end baking right through with out over-cooking. Over-baking cookies is the number one reason behind dry, crumbly cookies. We wish these to be comfortable and chewy and that is my favourite tip for ensuring they find yourself that approach!
  • Don’t place cookie dough on a scorching cookie sheet, it’ll make your cookies unfold too skinny. No one needs a paper-thin cookie!
