Cream Cheese Cookies

These cookies use cream cheese to give them that certain tang. Sometimes sugar cookies can be TOO sweet and that’s why some recipes use a little lemon flavoring. This recipe gets that naturally from the cream cheese.

These bake up covered in Jimmies Sprinkles. You don’t need frosting to decorate them, it’s like they’re already decorated. And they come out of the oven like that. So if you need a batch of cookies in a hurry this is one recipe you can depend on.

  1. My teen just made these and they are tasty! Very sweet and ours needed 14 minutes in the oven (the ones that baked for only 10 min were…a bit underdone). The dough is very tacky, but I’m guessing that helps with the sprinkle adhesion.
