Cinnamon Cream Cheese Cookies

Here’s a delicious recipe for Cinnamon Cream Cheese Cookies:


  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Additional cinnamon-sugar mixture for coating (optional)


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter, softened cream cheese, and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Add the egg and vanilla extract to the mixture, and beat until well combined.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, ground cinnamon, baking powder, and salt.
  5. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until a soft dough forms.
  6. Scoop tablespoon-sized portions of dough and roll them into balls.
  7. Optional: Roll each dough ball in the cinnamon-sugar mixture for an extra coating of cinnamon flavor.
  8. Place the dough balls onto the prepared baking sheets, spacing them about 2 inches apart.
  9. Gently press down on each dough ball with the bottom of a glass to slightly flatten.
  10. Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are lightly golden.
  11. Remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool on the baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring them to wire racks to cool completely.
