Cream Cheese Cookies

Quick, delicious cake-like cookies. Makes around 6 dozen.


  • 4 cups flour
  • 1 /2 cups sugar
  • 6 Tbsp. baking powder
  • Ad
  • 2 sticks (1 cup) butter
  • 8 oz. cream cheese, plain or flavored
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 3 tsp. vanilla


  • 1 lb. powder sugar
  • flavoring of your choice
  • milk or water to thin to your choice


Mix first 5 ingredients together either by hand or on slow by mixer. Add beaten eggs, mix then add milk and vanilla. I had purchased some pineapple cream cheese and didn't care for it on bagels so I used it in my cookies. If you have a flavoring to match like I did, pineapple flavoring, it makes a nice change to a plain cookie.

Bake at 375 - 400 degrees F. I bake mine at 390 degrees for 10 minute just until they start to go golden. They will dry out if baked to long. Remove from hot cookie sheets right away, cool and frost.

Frosting: Mix to a spreading consistency that you like, glaze or stand up frosting. These cookies are good without frosting.

Is 6 Tablespoons of baking powder correct? That would be almost 1/3 cup. I've never seen a recipe calling for that much before. Just checking. : ) Otherwise the recipe sounds like one I'd like to try!
