Cream Cheese Cookies

Something magical happens when you add cream cheese to a cookie! 

You get this scrumptious, moist, chewy cookie that feels like you’re eating a  pillow-soft cookie. For this recipe, I added just a  teaspoon of almond extract. The almond flavor is not super noticeable, but if almond is not your favorite flavor feel free to remove it and stick with just vanilla extract.

🍪Storing Cream Cheese Cookies

 Store cookies after they cool in an airtight container, good for 3 days. 

Freezing: Form the dough into one or two circle disks, each about an inch thick. Wrap the disks tightly in plastic wrap, then transfer the disks to a zip-top freezer bag or airtight container. The frozen disks of cookie dough can be stored in the freezer for up to three months.
