Calories 104kcal


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • Pinch kosher salt
  • ¾ cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract


  • Sift flour and baking powder into a bowl. Add salt and set aside.
  • Into a bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat butter and sugar on medium speed until well combined, about 3 minutes. Add cream cheese and until well combined. Scrape down the side of the bowl as needed. Add vanilla and beat until well combined.
  • Reduce speed to low and add flour mixture and beat just until incorporated and the dough starts to come together.
  • Scrape the dough onto a lightly floured work surface and divide in half. Shape each half into a disk, then wrap each disk in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 350º F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Over a big piece of parchment paper, or on a lightly floured surface roll out the dough disk about 1/4-inch thick. Cut into desired shapes, place at least 1-inch apart on prepared baking sheet. Refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  • Gather up the dough scraps and form into a disk, wrap, and refrigerate for 15-20 minutes. Then roll out and cut again. Repeat step 6.
  • Bake for 10 - 15 minutes or until cookies are just beginning to turn brown around the edges. Remove from oven and let them sit on baking sheet for 2 minutes. Then move to complete cooling on wire rack.
  • Serve as is or decorate with royal icing as desired.
  • Store in airtight container for up to 1 week.
