A Recipe from the Circle L’s Chuck Wagon.
|These cookies were for the twins to take to
preschool. I had a very good report back…
the container was EMPTY!!
Cream Cheese Sugar Cookies
1 pkg. (8 oz) Cream Cheese Softened
3/4 Cup (1 12/ sticks) Butter, Softened
1 Cup Granulated Sugar
2 tsp. Vanilla
2 1/4 Cups Flour (I use non bleached)
|Cookies ready for the oven.|
1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Beat Cream Cheese, Butter, Granulated Sugar and Vanilla in a large bowl with a electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Add Flour and Baking Soda; mix well.
Roll dough to desired thickness (I do 1/8-in or more!) on a lightly floured surface. Cut into your choice of shape(s) using cookie cutter(s). Place on Greased baking sheets.
Bake 10-12 minutes or until edges begin to brown. Transfer cookies to wire rack and let cool.
When cookies have cooled, frost them with your favorite frosting!
|Cooled and ready to be frosted. I used Cherry Frosting with a little bit
of Almond flavoring.
