Cinnamon Cream Cheese Cookies, AKA Sickerdoodles on steroids! Cream Cheese Cookies, just the name of these has me drooling.But, then add cinnamon to the mix and I’m sold!

These cinnamon cream cheese cookies remind me of snickerdoodles, however, they have the texture of meltaways. The absolute perfect combination.
This is really one of our favorite cookies ever and they are so easy to make! You will want to whip these up all the time, once you make them you won’t be able to stop.

Alternatives and Add-ons:
Want to really take these over the top? How about adding a yummy cream cheese or powdered sugar glaze drizzled over each cookie WOW!
Make cream cheese frosting and BOOM: Cinnamon Cream Cheese Cookie Sandwiches, wow again!

For even more of a spicy kick, add more cinnamon to the cookie dough. You can add this in at the same time as the flour.

I also think these would make a great cream cheese sugar cookie. Roll these in colored sugar for a festive touch! So, what do you think? Do you love cinnamon as much as I do?

Preheat Oven:

Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Cream Butter and Sugar:

In a large bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.
Add the cream cheese and beat until smooth.

Add Wet Ingredients:

Beat in the egg and vanilla extract until fully incorporated.
Combine Dry Ingredients:

In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined.

Form Cookies:

Scoop the dough into tablespoon-sized balls and place them on the prepared baking sheet, spacing them about 2 inches apart.
Flatten each dough ball slightly with the back of a spoon or your fingers.

Cinnamon Topping:

In a small bowl, mix together the ground cinnamon and a bit of granulated sugar (optional).
Sprinkle the cinnamon mixture generously over the flattened cookies.


Bake the cookies in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are lightly golden.
Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Storage: Store the cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week.
Variation: For an extra festive touch, you can drizzle a simple powdered sugar glaze over the cooled cookies.
