Amazingly soft, thick and chewy sugar cookies!
I have been making the same sugar cookie recipe for as long as I can remember – My grandmother’s “Travel Cookie” aka: Sugar Cookies have been a tradition in our family for well over 50 years. I love them so much…
…however, sometimes in life it’s nice to have options! I’ve heard about adding cream cheese to sugar cookies, but hadn’t tried it myself. I know cream cheese is delicious in pound cake! So, I played around with Grandma’s recipe… (waiting for lighting to strike…)
Well, let me say,1 I love them both!! (happens on The Bachelor, right?) These Soft Cream Cheese Sugar Cookies are thick, soft, chewy and have just enough tang from the cream cheese to offset some of the sweetness in the cookie and the buttercream frosting. That’s right, B-u-t-t-e-r-c-r-e-a-m F-r-o-s-t-i-n-g!! Grandma’s cookies have a thinner, still very delicious, icing – but these have thick, buttery frosting!! The kind you can really sink your teeth into.
It’s so satisfying to swirl the smooth, creamy buttercream frosting onto the thick, soft cookies…and even more satisfying to take a bite, maybe even take a bite at breakfast with a steaming hot mug of coffee. Not that I would know what that’s like – just saying. ( :
