"A soft, chewy, and flavorful sugar cookie. It is very important to chill the dough, as it is too sticky to roll unless well chilled."

    butter, softened
  • 3 oz
    package cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 tsp

How to Make CREAM CHEESE SUGAR COOKIE

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large bowl, combine the sugar, butter, cream cheese, salt, almond and vanilla extracts, and egg yolk. Beat until smooth. Stir in flour until well blended. Chill the dough for 8 hours, or overnight.
  2. When dough is properly chilled,
    preheat over to 375 degrees
  3. Bake for 7 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until light and golden brown. Cool cookies completely before frosting.
  4. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough 1/3 at a time to 1/8 inch thickness, refrigerating remaining dough until ready to use. Cut into desired shapes with lightly floured cookie cutters. Place 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Leave cookies plain for frosting, or brush with slightly beaten egg white and sprinkle with candy sprinkles or colored sugar.
    ALTERNATIVE: (instead of sprinkles)
    Frost with green food coloring added to the frosting of your choice.
    Make it festive !
