Okay, I was on Facebook this morning and someone, (HI DENICE), got a chat started about cookie recipes. I mentioned my favorite is a sugar cookie with cream cheese recipe. I was asked to share. So, I thought I’d share it with as many people as I could in one writing! lol
So, without further ado…here is the last sugar cookie recipe you’ll ever need!
Cream Cheese Sugar Cookies
First the boring stuff: Calories 88…..%Calories/fat 47%…..Carbs 10.5 grams…..Cholest 13 mgrams…..Protein 1.2 grames…..Fat 4.7 grams…..Fiber 23 grams…..Sodium 42 grams
Now the good stuff: Ingredients:
4 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp nutmet
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup shortening
1 (8oz) package cream cheese
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
Combine flour, baking powder, salt and nutmet…set aside. Cream together butter and shortening; add cream cheese and sugar, beating until fluffy. Add egg and vanilla; beat well. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Divide dough in half. Cover and chill 1 to 2 hours. On lightly floured surface, roll dough 1/8 inch thick (my preference but I leave it a bit thicker because I like the cookies thicker and for some reason they are almost cake like…soft and yummy). Cut with cookie cutters. Place on ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 375 for 7-9 minutes. Cool on wire rack and frost…if you have any left. LOL…they are delish plan or decorated.
Hope you enjoy this recipe….they are awesome!
