Description

This is the best cutout cookie recipe! Made with cream cheese to keep them chewy and tasty.

Ingredients

  • 2 sticks Unsalted Butter
  • 1 box Cream Cheese, Softened, 8 Ounce Box
  • 1-½ cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1  Egg
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 3-½ cups All-purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder

Preparation

1. Combine butter and cream cheese in a mixing bowl and use a mixer to beat until fluffy. Add sugar; beat until fluffy. Add egg and vanilla and mix well.
2. In a separate bowl combine the flour and baking powder. Then add it slowly to the butter and cream cheese mixture and beat well. Wrap your dough in a sheet of plastic wrap and freeze for an hour or two.
3. Preheat your oven to 375 F. Roll out our dough on a lightly floured surface to 3/8″ thick. Cut out your cookies with cookie cutters of your choice.
4. Bake on greased cookie sheets (or ungreased Pampered Chef Stoneware) for 8 to 10 minutes. Remove them from the pan to a wire rack and cool.
5. Decorate with your choice of frosting and sprinkles.

Let’s be clear…I love to EAT good sugar cookies. I hate to MAKE sugar cookies. This recipe changed my mind. I prefer a sweeter cookie that doesn’t need a slab of icing for flavor. Many sugar cookies can be dry and biscuit-like. This dough is so good I could not stop tasting it. The cream cheese is the key. I mixed them on Saturday, refrigerated the dough in disks and baked them Monday evening. I also hate when the dough sticks to the cutter or the board. I learned that rolling them between sheets of parchment or waxed paper makes cutting them infinitely easier. Next time I may just dust them with sugar…if they make it to the oven!
