In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese and butter with an electric hand mixer until it’s fluffy. Add in the egg, swerve and extracts and beat again until everything is nice and smooth.
Add all remaining ingredients to the bowl and stir until everything is well incorporated.

Top Tips for making Cream Cheese Keto Cookies
- Beat well: It’s important to cream the cream cheese and butter really well before adding in the other ingredients to make sure the batter is smooth. The cookies will turn out best this way!
- Press them out: You’ll want to make sure you press out your cookies so that they are about ⅓ inch thick before you bake them. This way, they will cook evenly!
- Cool completely: These cookies will easily fall apart if you try to remove them from the pan before they have cooled off, so make sure to keep them on the pan.
