💡Tips

1. Chill the dough before baking

After mixing the cookie dough, it’s important to refrigerate it for at least 40 minutes before shaping and baking the cookies. This step is crucial because chilling the dough allows the butter and cream cheese to solidify, which prevents the cookies from spreading too much in the oven.

It also gives the flavors time to meld together, resulting in a more delicious cookie. If you’re short on time, you can place the dough in the freezer for about 20 minutes instead.

2. Don’t overbake the cookies

These keto cream cheese cookies are done baking when the edges are golden brown, but the centers may still look a bit soft and underbaked. This is perfectly normal and exactly what you want. The cookies will continue to set and firm up as they cool on the baking sheet, so it’s important not to overbake them.

If you wait until the centers look completely done, the cookies will be dry and crumbly instead of soft and tender. Start checking the cookies around the 13-minute mark, and remove them from the oven as soon as the edges turn golden.

3. Use room temperature ingredients

When making these keto cream cheese cookies, it’s essential to use room temperature ingredients, especially the butter and cream cheese. This allows them to mix together more easily and create a smooth, homogeneous dough. Take the butter and cream cheese out of the refrigerator about 30 minutes before you plan to start baking.

If you forget to do this, you can soften the butter and cream cheese in the microwave for a few seconds at a time, but be careful not to melt them completely.
