Cream Cheese Cookies

Something magical happens when you add cream cheese to a cookie! You get this scrumptious, moist, chewy cookie that feels like you’re eating a  pillow-soft cookie.





How to make Cream Cheese Cookies (Galletas de Queso Crema)


Combine flour, cornstarch, baking powder, and sift flour mixture twice into a medium bowl. Set aside. *When flour is sifted with other dry ingredients, such as cornstarch, this helps to combine them evenly before they are mixed with other ingredients.

Cream together the butter and cream cheese with an electric or stand up mixer. Mix thoroughly. Add sugar and beat for 1 minute.

 

Add egg and beat to combine. Add extracts and beat until combined.
With paddle attachment attached, add flour mixture a little at a time to wet ingredients. Mixing till totally incorporated, refrigerate the dough for at least an hour.

 

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. If the dough is sticky, use flour on your hands to roll out 1-2 inch balls. Place cookie balls on the baking sheet. Carefully press down on cookie dough with a flat surface lightly



Bake for 10 minutes, or until light golden edges. Remove cookies to a wire rack after 1 minute.  Store cookies after they cool in an airtight container, good for 3 days.
