These will definitely be on my list to make this year

Cream Cheese Cookies

Makes About 24 cookies

8 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
3 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 cup sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt

Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Using a standing mixer or hand beaters, cream together the butter, cream cheese and sugar until light and fluffy, 3 to 5 minutes. Mix in the flour and salt, just until incorporated. Scrape down the bowl and give it a quick stir with a spoon to make sure everything is evenly mixed.

Drop the batter by tablespoonfuls onto baking sheets lined with parchment, leaving about 1 1/2 inches between each cookie (they will spread a little). Bake for about 12 minutes, until the edges are golden brown. Do not over-bake, or the cookies won't be chewy! Cool slight on the cookie sheet, and then remove the cookies with a spatula and let them finish cooling on a rack.

Since I didn't have unsalted butter I just used regular and then didn't add the salt. Also I added about 1-1/2 tsp vanilla extract. I made about teaspoon size cookies.

What's on your must bake list at Christmas time ??

If you don't risk anything, you risk everything.
Worry is a futile thing, it's somewhat like a rocking chair; although it keeps you occupied, it doesn't get you anywhere.
