I hope everyone had a great weekend! Thanks so much for all the birthday wishes!! The girls and I ended up being sick with colds through the weekend, and are still recovering. Needless to say, we had a great time on Friday night, but on Saturday, my actual birthday, we hung around the house to rest up. We hope to really celebrate when I’m feeling better.
On another note: Don’t these Cream Cheese Cookies look delicious? I grew up eating them throughout the Christmas season because my mom would make them for friends. This year I thought I’d give them a try, so I could have some at my house too. They were delicious, but still not the same. It’s probably more of a mental thing! Mama’s cooking is always better, right?
Here’s how to make them:
1 3 oz. cream cheese (softened)
1 egg yolk
½ tsp. vanilla
1 cup sugar
2 ¾ cups plain flour
They do not brown. They’ll appear as though they’re not even cooked after 15 minutes, but let them sit for awhile, and then they won’t be so soft.
Mix all ingredients with spoon.
