Cream Cheese Cookies

Cream Cheese Cookies

A delightful puff of cloud-like goodness all in one tiny cookie, that’s how I would describe these delicious morsels. Light and airy with hints of vanilla and almond and topped off with a dusting of icing sugar. Time for one more…well, maybe just one more after that. Here is the recipe so you can bake your own! Enjoy 🙂

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened (1 stick)
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1- 3/4 cup cake flour
  1. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Cream together butter and cream with electric mixer. 
  2. Add sugar and beat for 1 minute. Add egg and beat to combine. Add extracts and beat until combined. Add in baking powder and cake flour (in three sections), mixing to combine. 
  3. Once incorporated, refrigerate dough for at least an hour.Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Dough is sticky so use flour on your hands to roll out 1 to 2 inch balls. You can use the bottom of a cup/glass dipped in flour to gently flatten the balls. Don’t flatten too much or the cookies won’t puff up. 
  4. Bake for 9-11 minutes. Important: Pull them out when you see the underside edges turning golden! This might vary for your oven and altitude. Watch these cookies carefully!
