We’ve made oodles of cookies and sweets this year – many of them the old standby recipes like peanut butter fudge, chocolate chip cookies and magic cookie bars.
I thought I’d share one of my favorite indulgences this time of year that’s maybe not so ordinary, but very easy.
Cream Cheese Cookies
1/2 pound butter, softened
1 package cream cheese, softened
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup chopped nuts (I prefer pecans)
2 cups flour
Cream butter, cream cheese and sugar. Stir in vanilla, flour and nuts. Roll in a damp cloth (or waxed paper) and place in refrigerator for at least a couple of hours. Slice thin (about 1/4″) and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or just until edges begin to brown.
For what it’s worth, these freeze well and taste just as good frozen as fresh!
