It's important to note that this recipe is easy to make with room temperature ingredients to start off with. If the cream cheese, peanut butter, and butter are not room temperature, I suggest heating it about 30 seconds in a microwave first. This gives it just enough time to soften, but not melt. If you are not a fan of the microwave, just plan ahead for room temperature ingredients.
First, place the cold cream cheese, butter and peanut butter (or almond butter) in a microwave safe bowl and heat it in the microwave for about 30 seconds. This is not enough time to actually melt the ingredients but it does make it easier to mix until it's smooth and creamy.
Add the remaining ingredients and use a mixer to combine the remaining ingredients. The texture will be almost like a frosting.
Next, you can place a spoonful of the cookie dough into a silicone tray to divide them into portions or you can place the whole bowl in the refrigerator and scoop out portions as needed. Be sure to place a cover over the cookie dough. It will harden up a bit after it has been cooled for about 1/2 of an hour.
