I thought to share one of my simplest and most favorite recipes today (view here); Best Ever Cream Cheese Cookies. I love the way this dough mixes up in just a few minutes and is so versatile; you can drop these cookies, roll them into balls or even roll the dough for cut-out cookies. I went with the drop method and tossed the lumps of dough in some vanilla sugar before baking. These cookies truly are as good as they look, with a soft, dense inside and a lightly hardened, sugary outside to sparkle in the sunshine. The key to this cookie recipe is to not over-think it, just do what it says. There’s not much beating time involved and the dough chills out in the fridge for thirty minutes, while you get your groove on to do some baking. For the cookies in the photo, I scooped and dropped the dough in sugar, then dropped it on the cookie sheet. No shaping or rolling was involved and this helps them turn out thick and fluffy. They really are the Best Ever Cream Cheese Cookies.
