Cinnamon Cream Cheese Palmier Cookies, puff pastry, sweetened cream cheese, and cinnamon sugar baked to golden brown deliciousness!

Palmier Cookies are a classic French cookie, they are light, airy and crunchy! I did a twist on them by adding cream cheese and cinnamon sugar, wow!

These are some of the easier cookies I have ever made. All you have to do is purchase store-bought puff pastry, slather it with cream cheese, sprinkle with some cinnamon sugar, roll them up, cut and bake!

Plus, don’t they just look so pretty and elegant?! They look hard but believe me these Christmas cookies couldn’t get any easier!

Yes, I consider them a Christmas cookie, for some reason cinnamon in general screams holiday to me. But, you could definitely make these all year round they are that good!

They kind of remind me of a crunchy cinnamon roll, what’s not to love?!

Cinnamon Cream Cheese Palmier Cookies Directions:Let puff pastry thaw. Mix together cream cheese, butter, and powdered sugar. Evenly spread over pastry.

Mix together cinnamon and sugar, sprinkle over the cream cheese.

Roll one side tightly until you reach the middle of the dough. Repeat on the other side so the two halves touch.

Place in fridge for 15 minutes while the oven heats up. This will make cutting easier.

Cut 1/2 inch slices off of the roll, press into remaining cinnamon sugar, and place on a baking sheet about 3 inches apart. Bake for 12-14 minutes until slightly golden brown. Do not overbake, or the bottoms might burn.

Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

So delicate, crispy, light as air, and SO yummy!

Alternatives and Add-Ons:Some extra customizable ideas are adding extracts to the cream cheese mixture like vanilla or almond, very sparingly though!

Also, press the cookies into more cinnamon sugar once they cool to the touch for even more of a kick!
