  1. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, cream cheese and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Combine the flour and baking powder; stir into the creamed mixture. Divide dough into two pieces, cover and chill until firm, about 1 hour.
  2. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to 1/8 inch thickness. Cut in to desired shapes using cookie cutters and place the cookies at least 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.
  3. Bake for 7 to 9 minutes in the preheated oven, until bottoms are lightly browned and cookies are firm. Remove from cookie sheets to cool on wire racks.

This is the best cookie dough I have ever worked with. I own a gourmet shop and made Valentine's cookies to sell, they were fabulous! Make sure you properly chill the dough before working with it. It's the best!


This was "ok". One of only two, 5 star recipes, I wasn't happy with. It's not as flaky and light as I like my cookies. I have one my cousin gave me that calls for 2 sticks of butter and it's much lighter and tastier. I tried this one because everyone commented on how easy it was to work with. It is easy but the flavor is more important to me that the texture of the dough. My family is used to tasting the cream cheese and it wasn't there with these cookies. I'll try to post Lynda's Cream Cheese cookies in case anyone is interested.


I loved this recipe! I looked at the reviews first, so I added 1/2 tsp salt and 1/8 tsp nutmeg to the recipe and they added so much flavor! the cookies really held their shape and everyone loved them
