How to Make Cream Cheese Sugar Cookies
- In a large bowl, combine sugar, butter, cream cheese, salt, extracts, and egg yolk. Blend well. Lightly spoon flour into measuring cup, and level off to measure. Stir in flour until blended. Cover with plastic wrap and shape into a disk. Refrigerate for about 2 hours or overnight.
- Heat oven to 350. On a lightly floured board, roll out dough, 1/3 at a time to 1/8 inch thickness. (Keep remaining dough refrigerated). Cut into desired shapes with floured cutters. Place 1 inch apart on cookie sheets lined with parchment paper. Leave cookies plain or sprinkle with sugar crystals at this point.
