Chocolate Chip Cream Cheese Breakfast Cookies

Cookies for breakfast? Why not! These easy Chocolate Chip Cream Cheese Cookies are perfect for a sweet and satisfying morning munch. One of my kids favorite breakfast cookies!

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!

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.

I was planning to make these for my MOPS brunch, but I will have to make them the night before. Do I need to refrigerate them after I bake them, and then serve them at room temp? I’m sure fresh out of the oven is best, but unfortunately that isn’t going to work. Will they still be tasty??

I like to make everything from scratch so instead of buying the crescent dough already made, can i make the crescent dough or use cinnamon roll dough instead?

I just saw this receipe and it looks delicious! When you roll it do you start at the short end of the rectangle or the long edge of the rectangle. How many pinwheels does it make!

How about peanut butter and jelly that would be a little healthier.

I’ve never seen the Cresent Cookie Dough Sheet like that. Didn’t know they made a cookie dough. GREAT to know and Great idea. Thinking if you wanted a little healthier some days you might use fresh or fresh/frozen blueberries in place of the chocolate chips. Do you think that would work or do you think they would burn?

I love how the recipe calls for 1/2 cup of mini chocolate chips but yet the photo shows chocolate for days!!! I mean 1/2 cup is no more than a mere handful but yet you depict an entire sheet of crescent dough covered entirely by chocolate chips.

Hi, I’m from Australia and would love to try this but we don’t get the dough sheet here, what could I use as a substitute?
Loving your page and recipes 🙂
