Cream Cheese Sugar Cookies

I used to make these during the holidays and some I would cut out into shapes and let the kids ice them. But for the most part, I would make them as drop cookies and still have the kids ice some..They loved these sugar cookies. I found this recipe in a hometown paper years ago and thought it would be different with the cream cheese in it. It is the best I have had!
