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
This was by far the easiest dough that I've worked with and the cookies were great. I took them to two different functions in one day and everyone wanted the recipe. Thanks so much for sharing!
These are such good cookies! I've been making this recipe for years, they are REALLY good...my variation: sandwich two cookies together with raspberry jam, and roll in powdered sugar. Hmmm...thought I had some cream cheese in the fridge!
These were great! I put them in the refrigerator for an hour and they were way to sticky, so I ended up leaving them for about 3-4 hours and they were perfect. I did split up the dough into 4 pieces and when I rolled them I had the counter covered in a mixture of powdered sugar and flour (they say that will keep your cookies from getting to tough). The only problem, if you can call it a problem is that the tops got bubbly and I frosted them anyway and so there was no big deal.
This dough was easier to work with when I divided it into smaller pieces (4 sections instead of 2) and, as others noted, refridgerated it until well chilled (4-6 hours.) I worked with only one small portion at a time, used a generous dusting of flour on both the countertop and top of the dough, and also used only small cookie cutters. I ended up with nearly 70 delicious heart and star shaped cookies and had very little trouble with sticky dough.
I tried this cream cheese version of the traditional sugar cookie and I it received "WOWs" from my co-workers. Then I made them again for my family and I think they'll now expect me to make these all the time. Great recipe! Just be sure to use a LOT of flour when rolling them out.
