Soft Cream Cheese Snickerdoodles just say, “Happy Fall”. Don’t you just love the smell of cinnamon baking in the oven!?! Even though the kids are not at school as much as they use to be, these are still a perfect afternoon snack.
I love this time of year and all of the beauty the world has to offer. The trees will soon be changing and then we know that the holidays are just around the corner.
Also, I took Soft Cream Cheese Snickerdoodles to work, and my boss ate 5 of them. I hope that he liked them enough to give me a raise. 😉

How Do I Store Soft Cream Cheese Snickerdoodles?
Soft Cream Cheese Snickerdoodles are best right out of the oven, or at least slightly warm. You can keep them in an airtight container for up to five days if they are kept in a cool, dry place. If you are going to store them longer than that, then you can put your airtight container into the fridge. If the cookies are hard when you get them out of the fridge, you can warm them in the microwave for about 10 seconds to soften them.
Can I Freeze Soft Cream Cheese Snickerdoodles?
I like to make large batches of cookies and freeze them for future occasions. After they are cooled down, stack them (with wax paper between each cookie) into an airtight container and put them into the freezer.
Baked and frozen Soft Cream Cheese Snickerdoodles can last up to three months in the freezer. Thaw before eating. If the cookies are harder than you like, you can warm them in the microwave for about 10 seconds to soften them.
Can I Freeze Soft Cream Cheese Snickerdoodle Cookie Dough?
Yes, if you would like to make the batter and freeze it to use in the future, you can do that. I do suggest that you roll the dough into balls and then freeze the balls so that you can simply thaw the balls and roll them in the cinnamon and sugar mixture, then bake according to instructions.
