I just LOVE cookie dough that has cream cheese in it! I usually make a cream cheese frosting to decorate them with as well....so rich & YUMMY!


*SORRY!...This pix is not mine. I haven't located all of my food pictures yet (misplaced during the move), so I "borrowed" this one until I can make these again and take a new picture.

Ingredients

  • 1 c

  • 1 pkg
    (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 1/2 c
    granulated sugar

How to Make Cream Cheese Cut-Out Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large bowl, cream the butter and cream cheese until well blended. Add the sugar; blend until fluffy. Add the egg, vanilla extract and baking powder; beating well. Add the flour to the mixture; mix until well blended. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours (or overnight).
  2. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Roll out the dough to desired thickness (1/4 inch works well) on a lightly floured surface. Using cookie cutters, cut out dough into desired shapes. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets (I use parchment paper lined cookie sheets).
  3. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool completely. Frost and decorate, if desired.
