after a busy weekend, there is nothing more therapeutic to me than being in the kitchen… especially when i’m baking. so i flipped though some cookbooks for some inspiration and found a recipe that i tweaked a little. i think i found my go to cookies recipe:
recipe makes between 12-15 small cookies
preheat oven to 350 degrees
4 oz of softened cream cheese (half of a container or bar)
8 tablespoons of softened butter
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup of sugar
1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract
about a half cup of whatever nut or chocolate chip you would like to used (i used semi-sweet & milk chocolate chips mixed together and sliced almonds).
mix cream cheese, butter, and vanilla extract. add in sugar and flour and mix until blended. roll dough and nuts and/or chocolate chips into small balls and placed on ungreased cookie sheet (so much better in recipe-no need to grease).
bake for 12-15 mins or until lightly browned
