Cream Cheese Sugar Cookies

These are my FAVORITE cookies. I got this recipe about 10 yrs ago, from a dear, old friend of mine, who was my Girl Scout Co-leader. Thanks Nancy!

I swore I posted about them already and posted pictures from when we made our Halloween ones but I can't find that post. I really prefer to make a recipe when pictures are included. Not sure why, but that's just me. So, sorry for the lack of photos but still you really need to try this recipe. YUM!

1 c. sugar

1 c. butter, softened

3 oz. cream cheese softened

1/2 tsp. salt

1 tsp. vanilla

1 egg yolk

2 c. flour

Combine sugar, butter, cream cheese, salt, vanilla & egg yolk. Blend well. Stir in flour until well bended. Refrigerate dough 2 hours for easier handling.

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Roll out to 1/8 inch thick. Use your favorite cookie cutters. Bake for 7-10 mins. Cool and remove from cookie sheets.

Sounds yummy! We will have to try these sometime.

If they are even half as good as the granola bars I will be excited. I am going to put these on my "to bake" list with the girls. Thanks for sharing!

I have a recipe similar to yours. The sour cream is the trick. It makes such soft and yummy cookies. Thanks for sharing.

Looks simple enough that even I (not a good baker) could try my hand at these. Thanks!

Definitely going to make these. Maybe even next week before Thanksgiving. I have to make 4 dozen or more sugar cookies for Volunteer Appreciation Night at church. I'll try these out before I have to make all those cookies and see if it will be easy enough....thanks for sharing!
