Gluten Free Cream Cheese Sugar Cookies

Gluten Free Cream Cheese Sugar Cookies

Sharing is caring!

And today marks my last contribution to #ChristmasCookieWeek 😩 But I’m going out with a bang, don’t you worry! These sweet gluten free cream cheese sugar cookies were actually my favorite of the three recipes I created for this food event. They’re not too sweet and the cream cheese gives it a nice acidity and punch of flavor. And those Christmas sprinkles from Sweets & Treats (not sponsored) are just too cute! 

Gluten Free Cream Cheese Sugar Cookies

I rarely eat many of the things I bake. Usually, I take into work or to my family for them to eat. I will, of course, taste test everything, but eating a whole recipe by myself is never a good idea 😉 But I must admit, over the course of a week, I ate this entire recipe. LOL. They were THAT good. Definitely my favorite of the 3 recipes I’ve shared this week. I highly recommend them. These will totally be on our family Christmas dessert table this year. No doubt about it! 

I hope you all have enjoyed this week’s preview into some awesome Christmas desserts! I’ll continue to share some of my other favorite cookie recipes the rest of the week. Maybe you should look into this recipe for Italian Pizzelles. It just might be my favorite recipe I’ve ever created.
