We recently had some amazing cookies from a local restaurant, Rosie’s Place, this recipe is an attempt to recreate their butter cookies. The flavors aren’t quite up to their standard yet, but it is close.
- 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 large egg + 1 large egg yolk
- 1 cup + 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 + 1/8 teaspoon fine salt
- 1/3 cup powdered sugar
- Using a stand mixer beat together the cream cheese and butter until fluffy, about 30 seconds.
- Slowly beat the sugar into the cream cheese mixture until light and fluffy, 1 minute.
- Add the vanilla, whole egg, and egg yolk and beat until combined.
- In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Add this to the cream cheese mixture in three increments, beating in between each addition.
- Chill the dough in the fridge for at least 30 minutes, this is required.
- Preheat the oven to 325-degrees, and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
- Have the powdered sugar ready in a shallow bowl nearby.
- Scoop out a heaping tablespoon of dough, roll it in your hands to form a ball. Roll the dough into the powdered sugar before placing them evenly on the baking sheet.
- Bake for 14 minutes, making sure they do not brown in the oven. The top of the cookies will be puffed and slightly wet.
- Let the cookies cool completely on the baking sheet before serving.
