Cream Cheese House-Shaped Sugar Cookies Recipe


1 cup sugar

1 cup butter, softened

1 pkg (3 oz) cream cheese, softened

½ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon almond extract

½ teaspoon vanilla

1 egg yolk

2 cups all-purpose flour

House-Shaped Cookie Cutter

Colored sugar or decorator icing, if desired



In large bowl, combine all ingredients except flour and colored sugar; beat until light and fluffy.

Add flour; mix well. Shape dough into 3 disks. Wrap dough in plastic wrap; refrigerate 1 hour for easier handling.

Heat oven to 375°F. On floured surface, roll out 1 disk of dough at a time to 1/8-inch thickness. (Keep remaining dough refrigerated.) Cut with lightly floured 2 1/2-inch house-shaped cookie cutter. Place 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Decorate with colored sugar.

Bake at 375°F. for 6 to 10 minutes or until light golden brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheets. If desired, frost and decorate plain cookies.
