Cream Cheese Sugar Cookies

Cindi Bauer


My family loves these cookies! They surely are "the best" sugar cookie you will ever have. They are also great to make for that very special someone for Valentine's Day, Chritsmas, or for any occasion. I found this recipe in one of those Pillsbury booklet/baking magazine's from back in the 80's.
