Ingredients

Instructions

  • Gather all the ingredients.
  • Preheat oven to 325F.
  • Use a large mixing bowl to combine Sugar Free Peanut Butter, cream cheese, sweetener, and Vanilla Extract. Use a spoon or a hand mixer to combine dough together.
  • Roll the dough into 1 inch size balls and place on a silicone baking mat or greased baking sheet.
  • Press down the dough balls using your palm of your hand to roughly 1/4 inch thickness. You could then optionally press down a fork to make aesthetic designs on the cookies.
  • Bake at 325 F for 10-12 minutes or until edges start to slightly brown. Once done, let cookies rest for 5 minutes.
  • Carefully use a spatula to transfer cookies to a new tray/plate. Note - Cookies are still very soft at this point, so handle with care.
  • Place cookies into the freezer and freeze for 10 - 12 minutes until hardened to handle. Enjoy at room temp. Note - you can skip the freezing but will need to wait ~60 minutes for cookies to cool to room temp.

    Does it have to be sweetener or can I use sugar as a substitute… And if so which is the best? Brown sugar, granulated, powdered?
