star cookies...

So I did a cookie experiment (no kids involved) and here's how they turned out.  I have this thing about having the kids helping the kitchen--if food has the potential to be consumed by someone other than a family member, they're out.  I've had one too many sneezes in the banana bread bowl... 

Cream Cheese Sugar Cookies

Here's the recipe if anyone's interested. 
1 1/2 cup sugar
1 cup unsalted butter
1 package (8oz) cream cheese
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp almond extract
3 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder

Heat oven to 375.  Cream sugar, butter & cream cheese.  Add egg, vanilla & almond extract.  Add flour and baking powder to sugar/butter/cream cheese mixture.  Place dough in refrigerator overnight.  Roll out and bake in 375 oven for 7-10 minutes. 

Ice with confectioner sugar icing (confectioner sugar, butter, milk and almond extract) and add sprinkles or sugar.   

Happy Baking!
