Treat Tuesday #55...

Treat Tuesday - Peanut Butter & Chocolate Chip Cream Cheese Cookies

*Saw this on Facebook and we are going to give it a try.

*1 can seamless crescent rolls (or pinch together seams on a regular can)
*8 oz cream cheese, room temperature
*1/3cup sugar
*2 tsp vanilla
*¾ C mixed peanut butter and chocolate chips

-Beat sugar, cream cheese and vanilla together until smooth and creamy.

-Unroll the crescent roll sheet onto lightly floured surface.

-Stretch the dough out, I use a rolling pin to do this, then trim the edges to give it a good rectangular shape. A pizza cutter is great for trimming edges of dough.

-Spread the cream cheese mixture over the top of the crescent sheet, leaving a gap at the edge about 1/2 inch.

-Sprinkle your chips on top of cream cheese – press them in lightly to aid in rolling. 

-Roll the crescent sheet up tightly and wrap in cling wrap.

-Place in freezer for at least 2 hours it won’t get really solid as the cream cheese mix won’t freeze hard. 

-When chilled preheat oven to 350°.

-Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper (prevents sticking and helps in cleanup).

-Slice the crescent roll into 1/4" slices. They won’t keep the precise round shape, but that is fine!

-Bake on prepared cookie sheet for 12 -14 minutes until crescent roll appears golden brown.

-Cool on the parchment paper or wire rack.

-Enjoy! They are soft and oh so yummy!!
