Cheesecake Cookies!

Ingredients:
8 oz cream cheese (room temperature)

½ cup butter (room temperature)

1¼ cup granulated sugar

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2½ cups flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

½ teaspoon salt

Powdered Sugar
Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone mats.

Beat cream cheese and butter together until fluffy and smooth; 1-2 minutes. Add sugar to the butter mixture and beat until fully incorporated and fluffy; 1-2 minutes. Beat in the eggs and vanilla; 1 minute.

In a separate, medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture and stir just until incorporated. Do not over-mix.

Drop by rounded tablespoons onto the prepared baking sheets.

Bake at 350 degrees for 10-11 minutes. Cookies should be light in color, not browned, and just starting to brown on the bottom. *Length of baking time may vary from oven to oven.

Cool cookies on the baking rack for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

If desired, sprinkle with powdered sugar or dip in chocolate once cooled. 

Enjoy!
