Tuesday Treats – Peanut Butter, Chocolate, and Cream Cheese

Don’t forget I’m taking part in a Santa Baby blog on Donna Cumming’s site. Here’s the LINK. A bunch of different characters are sitting in Santa’s lap and telling the jolly old elf what they want for Christmas. Want to know what’s on the top of Abhean’s Christmas list? Check it out while you are making these yummy (and easy!) cookies. They are going on my To-Bake list for this year!

PB and CC Cream cheese cookiesPeanut Butter & Chocolate Chip Cream Cheese Cookies

1 can seamless crescent rolls (or pinch together seams on a regular can)
8 oz cream cheese, room temperature
1/3 cup sugar
2 tsp vanilla
¾ cup mixed peanut butter and chocolate chips

Beat sugar, cream cheese and vanilla together until smooth and creamy
Unroll the crescent roll sheet onto lightly floured surface. Stretch out the dough then trim the edges to give it a rectangular shape (A pizza cutter works well.)
Spread the cream cheese mixture over the top of the crescents, leaving a 1/2 inch gap at the edges
Sprinkle chips on cream cheese and press lightly into dough
Roll the crescent sheet up tightly and wrap in cling wrap
Place in freezer for at least 2 hours

Once chilled, line a cookie sheet with parchment paper (prevents sticking)
Slice the roll into 1/4″ slices (They won’t keep the precise round shape)
Bake at 350* for 12-14 minutes until golden brown

You know I’m going to add nuts to this, right? And maybe substitute white chocolate chips or caramel chips/bits (for the peanut butter because of allergies). The possibilities are endless! I’m all about the easy baking this year!

  1. I wonder… regular crescent roll triangles with the cream cheese mixture stuffed inside and sealed closed, then sprinkled with sugar. Man, am I lazy. I also lack counter space for rolling anything into a big rectangle. The Kid found a recipe where you put blueberries and sugar in crescent rolls, and it makes little pies. Those were yummy.

    I hope these turn out as yummy as they look, Silver. Let us know. =o)
