I truly love my cookies when it comes to dessert or snack options. I’ve come up with these Cream Cheese Cookies along with some other low carb desserts that really help you when you’re’ just dying for a little something indulgent, but something that won’t knock you out of ketosis.
Honestly, when you take a bite of these Cream Cheese Cookies, you won’t believe it’s keto. No worries, it won’t throw you out of ketosis. If you follow the directions and ingredients, you are definitely within the keto diet guidelines.
How to Store Keto Cream Cheese Cookies
As with a lot of keto baking, you should carefully wrap and store these cookies in the refrigerator. When they’re first done, these Keto Cream cheese cookies are likely to be a little soft and crumbly.
But if you let them cool completely (if you have that much patience!) you will be richly rewarded.
You can store these cookies in the refrigerator for about 3-5 days. They also freeze well, but you have to be patient about defrosting them. Do not try to defrost in a microwave. That didn’t work out so well for me!
What to serve with these Keto Cream Cheese Cookies
You can also serve them with a small dollop of sugar-free preserves if you’d like. But honestly, I’m not sure they need anything else.
They’re moist, soft little morsels of delight.

I know it can be hard to believe that these are keto cookies. However, they definitely are. So, throw a batch together and enjoy knocking that sweet tooth craving out of the water while still complying with your planned way of eating.
In this keto Cream Cheese cookies recipe, the cream cheese really helps not just provide creaminess, and a slight tang, it actually also helps hold that almond flour together and makes the cookies easy to hold together.
They are a little crumbly when hot, so if you can be patient and let them cool off completely, you will be a lot happier with these keto cookies once you are done.
Not that I’m the most patient person in the world, but for a good cookie?
Yeah, I think I will hold a little!
