Although if you were hanging around our kitchen lately – you might guess that something is in the works!
The girls and I have been baking up a storm and filling the freezer with cookies for his big day.
We love these sugar cookies! The recipe originally came from my sister-in-law, who got it from her husband’s grandma. (I guess that means I got the recipe from my husband’s sister’s husband’s grandma!)
They are so moist and easy to roll out and the cream cheese adds a great flavor. We did a sprinkle of just white sugar on these – but have used colored sugars in the past and even frosted them.
Cream Cheese Cut-Outs
1 cup butter
2 cup sugar
2 – 3 ounce packages cream cheese
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
Cream together the butter and sugar. Add the cream cheese, eggs and vanilla.
Add the flour and baking powder. Mix well.
Chill for at least 2 hours. Roll and cut out.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes.
Makes about 3 dozen 2-1/2 inch cookies.
