Cream Cheese Cookies

Ok so what kind of christmas would it be without baking a bunch of cookies? Today I found a GREAT recipe for cream cheese cookies at easy-cookies.com. It made 5 dozen cookies, they came out of the oven an hour and a half ago, and there's less than a dozen left! I'd call that a hit! I've also put a new section on the side bar, and tagged all recipe posts so that you can find them easily for quick reference. Enjoy!


Cream Cheese Cut Outs

2 1/2 cups flour

3/4 cup sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup butter, softened
2 T cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 tsp vanilla

In a large bowl mix flour, sugar and salt. With a mixer on med-low, add butter. Then add in the cream cheese and vanilla. Beat the dough on low until a ball forms. On a lightly floured surface, shape the dough into a ball. Divide into 2 pieces and form 2 flat disks. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes. On a lightly floured surface, roll out 1 disk at a time until it's 1/8" thick. Cut dough into desired shapes and lay on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375* for 7-9 minutes or until firm and bottoms are lightly browned. Transfer and let cool.
