Cheesecake Cookies

Extremely soft, simple, cookies that are realistically more a nice vanilla than cheesecake flavored. Whatever it is, it’s still a good flavor!

Ingredients:

  • 8 ounces full fat cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line to baking sheets, then set aside.

In a large bowl, beat together the cream cheese and butter until fluffy and smooth.

Add the sugar and beat again until light and fluffy.

Beat in the eggs and vanilla.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Gradually beat into the butter mixture until just incorporated.

Drop by rounded tablespoons on the lined sheets – these cookies don’t grow during baking, so you can space them closer together than I did.

Bake 10-11 minutes, until juuuuust starting to brown on the bottom.

Cool on a wire rack, then sprinkle with powdered sugar.

Yum!
