Peach Cream Cheese Cookies

Peach Cream Cheese Cookies are delectable treats that cater to various dietary preferences. These cookies are keto-friendly, low-carb, and sugar-free, making them suitable for those following a restricted diet.

They are crafted using a creamy cream cheese base and filled with a wholesome and natural homemade peach sauce, providing a burst of fruity goodness in every bite. Additionally, the peach sauce can double as a delectable syrup, adding a delightful touch to your favorite desserts.

How to make Peach Cream Cheese Cookies?

Directions

  1. Prepare peach sauce by combining water, sweetener, and chopped-up peaches in a saucepan. Smash the peach down with a spatula and soft boil until syrup is formed. Next, place the syrup into a food processor to achieve a smooth consistency.
  2. In a large bowl, combine almond flour, sweetener, cream cheese, and melted butter with an electric mixer and whisk until the mixture is well combined.
  3. Make cookie dough balls about the size of a golf ball, place them on a baking sheet, cookie sheet, or parchment paper, and use the palm of your hands to press down. Make an indent using your thumb and place peach sauce inside. I recommend slightly overfilling just enough to create a mound but not over-spilling. The cookie will expand as it bakes, so the center will as well. Slightly overfilling will compensate for this.
  4. Bake at 325 F for 16-20 minutes or until the bottom edges start to slightly brown. Once done, place on a cooling rack and wait at least 10 minutes to cool the cookie before handling.

Pro Tip

Quickly cool the cookies placing them in the freezer for 5 minutes. The cookies must be cooled before handling because the cream cheese needs to cool to hold the cookies together.

Ingredients

Peach Sauce

  • 1 Whole Peach ripe
  • 2 tbsp Sweetener your preferred sweetener
  • 3 1/2 tbsp Water

Cookies

Instructions

  • Gather all the ingredients.
  • Preheat oven to 325F.
  • Peel off skin with a peeler and remove pit from peach. You can either slice or chop peaches into cubes, either way set aside once done.
  • In a small saucepan, add peaches, sweetener, and 3 1/2 tbsp of water. Note - depending on how ripe your peaches are, you may have to use 3-4 tbsp of sweetener.
  • Cook on medium heat until boiling, then turn down to low, stirring often and crushing peach with a soft spatula until a nice syrupy sauce forms. Roughly 10-15 minutes and will depend on how ripe the peach is. Set aside cool down.
  • Once cooled, pulse in a food processor or blender until smooth. Set aside to cool.
  • In the meantime, melt butter in a small bowl in the microwave (about 45-60 seconds).
  • Use a large mixing bowl to combine Almond Flour, sweetener, cream cheese, melted butter and vanilla extract. Mix well for about 1 minute with a hand/stand mixer. Note - make sure melted butter is at room temperature when pouring otherwise it will 'cook' the batter.
  • 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.
  • With your thumb, make an imprint and press about 3/4 the way down.
  • Fill each cookies with about 1/2 tsp of peach sauce in the center. I recommend slightly overfilling just enough to create a mound but not over-spilling. The cookie will expand as it bakes, so the center will as well. Slightly overfilling will compensate for this.
  • Bake at 325 F for 16-20 minutes (ours took 18 minute or until bottom edges start to slightly brown. Once done, wait at least 10 minutes for cookie to cool down prior to handling. We prefer enjoying the cookies once they have completely cooled down and hardened, which takes about 1 hour, but it's up to you!
