Peanut Butter & Chocolate Chip Cream Cheese Cookies

Top Review by Jill C.

I made these for my husband who is Type II diabetic. It appealed to me as it has very little sugar (I substituted Stevia for the sugar). He loved them! Not too sweet, but very tasty!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (12 ounce) canseamless crescent rolls
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 13 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 34 cup peanut butter chips (use a mixture) or 34 cup chocolate chips (use a mixture)

Directions

  1. Beat sugar, cream cheese and vanilla together until smooth and creamy.
  2. Unroll the crescent roll sheet onto lightly floured surface. . Stretch the dough out, I use a rolling pin to do this, then trim the edges to give it a good rectangular shape. A pizza cutter is great for trimming edges of dough. Pinch together seams on pre-cut crescents if necessary.
  3. Spread the cream cheese mixture over the top of the crescent sheet, leaving a gap at the edge about 1/2 inch.
  4. Sprinkle your chips on top of cream cheese – press them in lightly to aid in rolling.
  5. Roll the crescent sheet up tightly and wrap in cling wrap.
  6. Place in freezer for at least 2 hours it won’t get really solid as the cream cheese mix won’t freeze hard.
  7. When chilled preheat oven to 350°.
  8. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper (prevents sticking and helps in cleanup).
  9. Slice the crescent roll into 1/4" slices. They won’t keep the precise round shape, but that is fine!
  10. Bake on prepared cookie sheet for 12 -14 minutes until crescent roll appears golden brown.
  11. Cool on the parchment paper or wire rack.
