Cream Cheese cookies sound SO GOOD!!!!

ribbitfroggie Posted 12 Aug 2007 , 9:52am

I love this recipe! I tried it because someone said that it doesn't spread, which it doesn't (you don't even have to freeze first) but the taste is superb. I use it for all my cut-out cookies now!

This recipe is VERY similar to my business recipe, but mine calls for brown sugar, cinnamon and a hint of lemon juice! This is an excellent recipe I'm sure!

Are there 2 eggs in the recipe or just one? I really want to try these cookies! TFS!

mis Posted 15 Aug 2007 , 9:47pm

Hmm good catch. I haven't made these yet I just saved it from another thread. Maybe someone else that made them will know. But from what it says in the instructions it says add egg.

Sorry I didn't even see that. icon_redface.gif

millicente Posted 15 Aug 2007 , 9:58pm

keep me posted......











So.........penguinprincess how many eggs do u use in your recipe?

I haven't actually tried them on a stick yet, but they are a great cookie to decorate, while still staying soft on the inside. I would assume that they would do great on the stick though.

MMF is marshmallow fondant. HTH!

oo, cant wait to try out!!

mhooper12000 Posted 16 Aug 2007 , 3:47am

penguinprincess Posted 16 Aug 2007 , 4:16am

Will you give us an update on how well they work? I'm wondering about the "spread factor" and whether or not they are fragile.

ladefly Posted 16 Aug 2007 , 12:27pm

Cambo,
you said that your was very similar but with a few chages, could you post yours... did you have 2 eggs or 1???
thanks mary

berryblondeboys Posted 16 Aug 2007 , 12:37pm

I have a cream cheese cookie recipe too and we LOVE it. However, they do spread a little bit. They hold shape, but not EXACTLY as they were cut... I'll be curious to see if you guys like this one so maybe I'll switch allegiances - I LOVE these cut-outs.... I cut them a little thick so they stay a little soft. I hate crispy oatmeal, chocolate chip, peanut butter or sugar cookies. The only cookies that can be crispy are those store bought things like Pepperidge Farm or something like that.

These cookies sound good but what icing would be good to compliment the cream cheese taste?

candae Posted 16 Aug 2007 , 1:44pm

I think a light lemon icing, or even a pumkin icing would complement this cream chesse very well.

mdutcher Posted 16 Aug 2007 , 2:07pm

Oh yum. Now I'm hungry for sugar cookies!!! icon_biggrin.gif
I'm lazy when it comes to cookies. I seem to be "cut out cookie challenged". I use the cake mix sugar cookie recipe so I can just make perfect, soft, yummy round cookies.
Every time I've tried cut out cookies in the past, they ended up either too dry, crunchy or floury. I need to just put the dedication that I put into my cakes into sugar cookies and then I'll probably figure it out. Like I said, I'm just lazy when it comes to cookies.--love the taste, not the effort. hehehe.
I'll have to try these cream cheese cut out cookies, though. They sound yummy!

They don't taste like cream cheese - at least mine don't. They can take whatever topping you want. I usually just put a glaze on mine. I'm not into fancy decorated cookies. We are just family cookie makers for the holidays! (well... if you count halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valetines, Spring, and so on as all "holidays"! LOL)

The cookies I posted, the White Velvet Cutout cookies don't spread at all, if you look through my pics you can actually see where I started using them because all of the shapes began to be perfect-without using the freezer, which I hated, lol. They are a tad more fragile until they dry but I think that has to do with me not cooking them as long to make sure they are very soft, I hate crunchy cookies. Also they don't really have a cream cheese flavor, it is very subtle and works great with all icings. HTH!

texastwinkie Posted 17 Aug 2007 , 5:31pm

ribbitfroggie, have you made them on a stick? Wondering if they will stay on?? Also, I noticed there was frosting recipe for them.... have you tried it as well??? I'm not a fan of NFSC , they are ok but there has to be something better out there so these White Velvet cookies intrigue me!

millicente Posted 17 Aug 2007 , 5:57pm

ok where is the frosting recipe did i miss something

boricua_mami75 Posted 17 Aug 2007 , 7:11pm
