Cream Cheese Butter Cookies

Cream Cheese Butter Cookies

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


  1. Using a stand mixer beat together the cream cheese and butter until fluffy, about 30 seconds.
  2. Slowly beat the sugar into the cream cheese mixture until light and fluffy, 1 minute.
  3. Add the vanilla, whole egg, and egg yolk and beat until combined.
  4. 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.
  5. Chill the dough in the fridge for at least 30 minutes, this is required.
  6. Preheat the oven to 325-degrees, and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  7. Have the powdered sugar ready in a shallow bowl nearby.
  8. 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.
  9. Bake for 14 minutes, making sure they do not brown in the oven. The top of the cookies will be puffed and slightly wet.
  10. Let the cookies cool completely on the baking sheet before serving.
