Cream Cheese Peanut Butter Cookies Ingredients
- All-purpose flour: For gluten free cookies, use a good quality gluten free all-purpose flour.
- Baking powder and soda: They help to create fluffy and soft cookies.
- Unsalted butter: Make sure you use unsalted butter, otherwise the cookies might be way too salty because any store bought peanut butter is savory.
- Cream cheese: Use full fat cream cheese for better results.
- Light brown and white sugar: The recipe calls for both light and white sugar. I like to add brown sugar for denser and moister cookies.
- Vanilla extract: It boosts the flavor.
- Peanut butter: Both regular smooth and chunky peanut butter will work.
