They’re a perfect cookie any time of year, too.
When Grandma made them during the holidays she’d sprinkle red and green sugar on top to make them more festive. It really just made me eat more of them because I loved how they looked.

You don’t want to leave them in the oven too long because the bottoms and edges can darken quickly. I like mine just a bit golden around the edges. If they’re a little darker they’re fine, too, but more than that they’ll taste burnt.
And ain’t nobody like a burnt cookie!

Use these items to make your own Cream Cheese Cookies – this mixer, and these baking trays.

Please note that the amount of cookies this recipe usually makes is about 48 and it will make that many if you use a level TEASPOON. They will be small cookies and they won’t spread. We love them this size and it’s the way Grandma made them, so I’m sticking with it.
I’ve only made them a little bit bigger a time or two, maybe two teaspoonfuls, but watch the baking time. They may need to bake a minute or two longer depending on the size.
