Cheesecake Cookies (Re-do) These were really good, I want to try them dipped in chocolate too. I gave these to neighbors and made some chocolate chip to go with it on the plate. --be sure to follow the tips Serves: 44 cookies Ingredients 8 oz cream cheese (room temperature) ½ cup butter (room temperature) 1¼ cup granulated sugar 2 eggs 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 2½ cups flour 2 teaspoons baking powder ½ teaspoon salt Coupons Powdered Sugar Instructions Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone mats. Beat cream cheese and butter together at high speed until fluffy and smooth; 1-2 minutes. Add sugar to the butter mixture and beat until fully incorporated and fluffy; 1-2 minutes. Beat in the eggs and vanilla; 1 minute. In a separate, medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture and stir just until incorporated. Do not over-mix. Drop by rounded tablespoons onto the prepared baking sheets; batter will be sticky. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-11 minutes. Cookies should be light in color, not browned, and just starting to brown on the bottom. *Length of baking time may vary from oven to oven. Cool cookies on the baking rack for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. If desired, sprinkle with powdered sugar or dip in chocolate once cooled.
