About This Recipe

“I have had this recipe for so long that I can’t remember where it came from, but I think I got it out of a magazine or newspaper. I like it because you can use the dough in so many different ways. For the Holidays, you can press half of a candied cherry in the center of unbaked cookie, and then after baking drizzle with either white or dark chocolate, melted.”


    • 1 1/2 cups sugar
    • 1 cup butter or 1 cup margarine
    • 1 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese
    • 1 egg
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla
    • 1 teaspoon almond extract
    • 4 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder


  1. Cream sugar, butter, cream cheese until fluffy.
  2. Add egg and flavorings.
  3. Beat until smooth.
  4. Add flour and baking powder, mixing well.
  5. Drop dough by spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets and flatten with a flat bottomed drinking glass which has been dipped in sugar.
  6. OR: Force dough through a cookie press.
  7. OR: Chill dough 1 to 1 1/2 hours and roll out on lightly floured surface.
  8. Cut with cookie cutters.
  9. Bake at 375 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes, or slightly less if you like a not-so-crispy cookie.
