What's better than butter, sugar, cream cheese and almond? Nothing! These cookies are soft and delicious. They melt in your mouth. They are great plain with colored sugar melted on top while they bake but they are even better with frosting. Bake some up and enjoy decorating them with your kids or grand kids.
