These Cream Cheese Snickerdoodles are the classic cinnamon sugar taste you love in a puffy cookie, not too sweet and just the right amount of tartness from the cream cheese in the dough.

 

Every holiday cookie should include this recipe for Cream Cheese Snickerdoodles!

These Cream Cheese Snickerdoodles are one of my favorite Christmas cookies to include on holiday cookie platters! I’m also sharing the recipe as a paid partnership with American Dairy Association Mideast.  I love bringing you recipes and working with brands that I love. The partnership I have with ADA Mideast is special to me especially since one of my sons gets the bulk of his protein from dairy (due to other past food allergies).

Cream Cheese Snickerdoodles recipe for puffy cookies

With cream cheese in the dough, and perfectly paired with a mug of sweet hot chocolate this classic recipe is a tradition in our home. Our favorite Christmas cookies are these well-loved Best Sugar Cookies but there’s always room for a variety on the holiday cookie platter. Plus, I love bumping up my recipes with dairy. Here are  four tips for using dairy to take holiday recipes to the next level, such as by adding browned butter, cooking with buttermilk and braising chicken and pork in milk.

Let me know if you give them a try! If you’re a regular around here this little note is for you (otherwise just scroll right on to the recipe!). Well, 2018 was a big year for me personally. I won’t get into all the details, but among other things our family moved from our beloved home of the past 13 years. I brought my babies home from the hospital and spent the next decade chasing them around there with lots of love and laughter. It was a bittersweet move but we truly LOVE our new home. So, Katrina has a new kitchen…and an actual office space! I’m looking forward to bringing you lots of recipes in 2019!  Continue Reading...
