Cream Cheese Sugar Cookies
Cherish and other reviewers suggested the following changes and these cookies came out perfect!
1 1/2 cup sugar, 1 cup of unsalted butter, 1 8oz cream cheese, 1 egg, 1 tsp vanilla, 1/2 tsp almond extract, 3 1/2 cup flour and 1 tsp baking powder
I might have only used 1cup sugar though, can't exactly remember.
But- these cookies were absolutely delicious! They were soft, not too sweet, perfect flavourful (I could eat them without frosting, though its even better with it).
This is one of the best and easiest recipes I've tried on allrecipes. This will be my go to sugar cookie recipe from now on.
*I hate sickly sweet frosting, and began to follow the Sugar Cookie Frosting recipe on this website as reviewers said it wasn't too sweet. I hated it-- it was waay to sweet, so I modified it. Here is my frosting recipe:
1cup unsalted butter,
3-4 cups icing (confectioners) sugar (start with 2-3cups and add more until you get your desired sweetness)
1pkg (8oz) cream cheese
2/3 tsp almond extract
1 1/2tsp Vanilla extract
Beat all ingredients together. Its perfectly flavoured and not overly sweet. If you let the frosting dry overnight on the cookies, it will be stackable, but the frosting does not completely harden.
