le petit muse: melt-in-your-mouth cream cheese sugar cookies

Standard

melt-in-your-mouth cream cheese sugar cookies

yields 3 dozen cookies

1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon cream of tartar

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/8 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature

1/2 cup or 4 ounces cream cheese, room temperature

1-1/2 cups sugar

3 egg yolks

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 350°F and line your baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt. In the bowl of your stand mixer beat the butter and cream cheese until well combined. Add the sugar and beat until light and fluffy. Slowly add in the egg yolk one at a time and beat until the batter becomes a pale yellow color and add the vanilla extract. In three additions, beat the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until just combined and uniform.

Drop 1 rounded tablespoon balls of cookie dough onto your prepared baking sheets leaving approximately 1.5 inches around each ball. These cookies do spread, so be sure to give it some room! Bake for approximately 7-10 minutes or until the outer corners are just barely set (do not let them turn brown!!).
