THE BEST EVER CREAM CHEESE COOKIES

These would be great with a cup of coffee! YUM!

Ingredients:

1/2 Cup Unsalted Butter (room temperature) *I only had salted and it didn't make a difference
3 oz. Regular Cream Cheese (room temperature)
1 1/2 Cups Confectioner's Sugar
1/2 Tsp Baking Powder
1 Egg (room temperature)
1/2 Tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
1 3/4 Cups All - Purpose Flour
super fine sugar

Directions:
*Heat your oven to 375 degrees and line your cookie sheets with parchment paper. *I just sprayed my cookie sheet since I didn't have parchment paper.

*Place butter and cream cheese in your mixer bowl and beat for 1 minute.
*Beat in the sugar and baking powder.
*Add the egg and vanilla and 'Beat Until Fluffy.'
*Beat in the flour.

*Chill for 30 minutes for drop/roll cookies, one hour for cut-out cookies.
*Scoop by rounded teaspoon full and dredge drop cookies (roll balled cookies) in superfine sugar.

*Bake for 7-9 minutes.
*Cool for 1 minute on cookie sheet then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.




Enjoy!
