It's National Cookie Cutter Day! Who would think they would make December 2nd a special cookie cutter day? So being it is that Special Cookie Cutter lol Day here are my Sparkle Cut out cookies to share.
My grandchildren love them! A tender not too sweet cookie treat.
This is a great fun recipe. Make a memory!
1- 8 oz. package Cream Cheese softened
1- cup butter
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 1/4 cup flour
dash salt ( I use salted butter so I eliminate this)
Combine softened cream cheese, sugar, butter and vanilla. Mix with electric mixer until smooth. Add flour and salt. Chill. On a floured surface roll out dough to 1/8"thickness. Cut out with assorted 3"inch cookie cutters.
Place on un greased cookie sheet. Decorate with colored sugar or candies.
Bake 375 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes. Cool and store in cool area. This recipe makes approximately 2 1/2 dozen.
