As I sit here at the computer struggling to find the words to adequately describe the sheer magnitude of awesomeness that is this cookie, it hits me..There are no words! Seriously, I can’t conjure up any adjectives that will do these cookies justice.
These cookies are just one of those things that you will have to trust me on, and go make as soon as you have some extra room in your skinny jeans.
I can’t even call them cookies, because they’re SO much better than just a cookie! Sweet, yet not too sweet, soft, but not too soft, rich, but not too rich! They will melt away in your mouth leaving behind no evidence other than the fact that you will be in a state of cookie euphoria for the better part of your day!
This recipe makes LOTS and trust me~ you will need them! Only share these with people you love and want to see for the rest of your life!
~You can even color these babies for the holidays and suddenly become everyone’s favorite guest! 🙂
What you’ll need for approx. 2-3 DOZEN Cookies:
8 oz. Cream Cheese..softened
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter..softened
1- 1/2 cups flour
1-1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup decorative/sparkle/sanding sugar
In a large bowl beat together the butter and the cream cheese…
Mix in the sugar…
And the flour…
Add in the rest of the ingredients (other than the decorative sugar for the topping) mix until it’s nice and thick and smooth as a baby’s bottom…
Place approx. one tbsp. scoop of batter onto a parchment lined baking sheet and sprinkle the tops with some decorative sugar…regular sugar will work too!
Bake them at 350 for approx. 15 minutes, or until they’re firm and slightly golden. Let them cool…
NOW~ sink your face into that heaven you’ve been patiently waiting a looong 15 minutes for! 🙂 ~Enjoy!
