You read that right.

Breakfast cookies.

I am not above eating desserts for breakfast.  It’s basically the American way.  I mean hello Pop Tarts and Cookie Crisp.

Actually I think it’s a proven fact that a slice of cake tastes best with a cup of coffee at 8 a.m…am I right or am I right?

Don’t answer, I’m right.

So today I am not only making it ok to eat cookies for breakfast, I am encouraging it.

Don’t let labels keep you boxed it.

“Breakfast” doesn’t mean “eggs and bacon” or “Cheerios”…I’m pretty sure the literal translation means “eat cookies in the morning”

…don’t argue.

So let’s do this.

Chocolate Chip Cream Cheese Breakfast Cookies for everyone!

How to Make these Easy Breakfast Cookies

You’ll only need a few ingredients for these yummies.  Which is kinda great because no one needs complicated at 7:00 in the morning.

I love Crescent Rolls and that’s where these cookies begin.  They are available now “seamless” so the possibilities are huge…

If you can’t find the seamless, no worries, just roll out a regular can and don’t separate them.

Unroll the sheet of dough and stretch it out so it’s evenly rectangular.

Mix up some softened cream cheese, sugar and vanilla and then spread it over your dough.

Sprinkle some mini chocolate chips on top of the cream cheese…

and roll it up.

Wrap your crescent log in cling wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.  Or make them the night before…

When you’re ready to bake your cookies, preheat your oven and slice into 1/4″ pieces.

Bake on a parchment lined baking sheet.

When they are done they will be golden brown…

Serve them warm or room temperature.

Good morning to ya!

  1. Look wonderful and thank you for having cookie sheets showing that look like they have been used a few hundred times. I have the same look here on mine.
