This recipe comes from a special friend of mine. I knew we had alot in common but it looks like we have more in common than I thought. We like cookies! Here is her recipe as it was given to me.
Only 4 ingredients.
1-8 oz. pkg. of cream cheese. I always buy the cheap brand.
1 lb. of butter
2 cups of granulated sugar
4 cups of flour
Cream the cheese and butter thoroughly. Make sure they are at room temperature or you'll break your arm trying to cream them together. Or use a heavy duty mixer. Add the sugar and blend well. Add the flour and mix like crazy. Throw the bowl in the freezer for half an hour or so. (This was not that hard to me) Spray the cookie sheets with Pam or something cheap. I always buy the cheap brand. Now here comes the part I hate. Roll them in little balls about the size of a walnut or even smaller.(I used my little cookie scoop from Pampered Chef it is easier)Set on cookie sheets, smash with a glass dipped in granulated sugar. Sprinkle with red and green sugar. Bake for about 10-12 minutes at 350° until set and light brown on the bottom. Make sure they are taken off the cookie sheet right away or they might stick. They freeze like a dream. Hide from the family and/or your DH until closer to Christmas. I usually label the container as date-filled bars since nobody likes dates in my house except me.
I also add 1 tsp. vanilla
The bolded parts are my contribution.
I have had many people tell me I should make these and sell them, but I would rather make them and eat them. Yum!!!!!!!!!!!
