Jen S. , one of our beloved readers, Cream Cheese Cookie Recipe
GAAHHH!! You need to make some Cookies Right Now? What’s the Easiest Christmas Cookies I can whip up with ingredients I have in my pantry right now?
Cream Cheese Cookies:
2 packages of cream cheese, softened
1 cup Crisco
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
2 egg yolks
2 cups flour
Maraschino cherries, halved
Preheat oven to 350
Mix all ingredients together until just blended
Drop by spoonfuls on ungreased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart
Top each with half a cherry
Bake until edges are slightly brown, maybe 15-20 minutes
Some people also put half a walnut on top instead of a cherry. Or you could pop a chocolate Kiss on when you remove from the over. Also, these cookies taste amazing topped with a lemon glaze! Enjoy!
Thanks Jen S. for this amazing recipe! Here’s what she has to say about it:
I have never seen these anywhere and have never heard of anyone else making them. I don’t know if my Great Grandmother made them up or if they were really around in Poland…where she came from.”
