Why I Love This Recipe

When you’re in a hurry and need to whip up a quick dip for a Christmas party, this Sugar Cookie Dough Dip is the recipe you’ll want to reach for.

It tastes just like a sugar cookie and seriously only takes 15 minutes to make. Plus, you can flavor it with different flavored creamers like peppermint for Christmas or Pumpkin spice creamer and pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon for fall holidays.

Christmas Cookie Dip is fun and festive and perfect for all your holiday parties or for a yummy Christmas Eve snack, but you can use it year-round – just swap out the sprinkles for the holiday!

Ingredients

  • Cream Cheese – Use a full-fat, block-style cream cheese for the best consistency and taste. Make sure to set it out at least 30 minutes so it will be nice and soft.
  • Butter – I added a few tablespoons of butter to the recipe, to add that buttery flavor you get with real sugar cookies.
  • All-Purpose Flour – The first two steps of the recipe are for treating the flour by baking it. This will kill any possible bacteria that may be present in raw flour.
  • Granulated Sugar – The “sugar” part of the sugar cookie dip!
  • Vanilla – Adds a nice balance to the flavor.
  • Sweetened Coffee Creamer – You can really use any flavor you like, but a regular sweetened creamer is fine. Or you can just add heavy cream or milk if you prefer.
  • Festive Sprinkles – Optional, but you’d add them to real sugar cookies, right?
  • Dippers – Like graham crackers, animal crackers or vanilla wafers.

NOTE: This recipe originally used a pre-packaged Sugar Cookie Mix, which you are welcome to do if you prefer. But for food safety, I now make my own so I can cook the flour, making it safer to eat.

Should you prefer, you can use a cup of Sugar Cookie Mix in place of the first 5 ingredients.

See the recipe card below for full, detailed instructions

Flour on a baking sheet.

Treat the Flour. For safety, you should not consume raw flour (same as with raw eggs). Bake the flour for 6 minutes at 350℉, then let it cool before moving on to the next step.

Cream cheese beaten in a bowl.

Beat cream cheese and butter. Add the softened cream cheese, butter and cream to a large mixing bowl and beat with a hand mixer. If you have a stand mixer that works, too. The best tip I can offer for this dip is to whip it for about 2 – 3 minutes until it’s light and fluffy. It makes a difference!

Stir in the remaining ingredients. Stir in the flour, sugar, salt, and vanilla, mixing just until combined so the dip stays nice and fluffy.

Serve. Pour dip into a serving dish and top with festive holiday sprinkles. Place the serving dish in the middle of a platter or board and surround with graham crackers, animal crackers, fresh fruit, cookies or pretzels.

Variations

Change it up for the season or for a holiday!

Pumpkin Spice: Add ½ teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon instead of vanilla, and replace the creamer with Pumpkin spice-flavored creamer.

Peppermint: Add ½ teaspoon of peppermint extract.

Storage

This dip will remain fresh for 3-4 days if refrigerated in an airtight container. It will firm up as it sit in the fridge, so let it sit out on the counter for 10-15 minutes prior to serving. Do not let it sit out more than 2 hours before refrigerating again.

Do not freeze. The texture will change significantly as it thaws.

    Have you tried freezing the dip?

    1. Kristin Maxwell says:

      I haven’t, but I think it would probably be fine

  2. Julia says:

    With the original version, would you handmix the sugar mix, cream cheese and creamer at the same time?

    1. Kristin Maxwell says:

      Yes you can do that.

  3. Kelly says:

    Have you tried heat treating the raw cookie mix? Does it work or does the sugar just melt?

    1. Kristin Maxwell says:

      No, I haven’t. If you want to do this. I would try testing just a small amount first and see if it works.

  4. Lacy says:

    What fruit would you recommend to dip with this? Trying to have a variety

    1. Kristin Maxwell says:

      Hi Lacy, I think it might be too thick to dip fruit in. But you could try bananas or strawberries. Apples might be the most sturdy, but I don’t know if they’d taste as good.

  5. Rebecca says:

    This dip was a hit! Some compared it to a “dunkaroo”. So easy to make, I’ll definitely be making this every year
