Cream Cheese Cookies

Labels: { , }


If you are looking for some buttery, chewy, soft and mellow cookies, then this is the one for you. These cookies are plainly delicious, especially if you are a fan of cream cheese, which serves as a fanf^ckingtastic catalyst for the rich robust flavour in cookies.

  • 20 g Raisins, finely chopped
  • 60 g Cake flour
  • 1/4 tsp Baking powder
  • 50 g Butter, softened
  • 50 g Cream cheese, regular
  • 30 g Icing sugar
  • 15 g Egg white
  • Extra icing sugar for coating
  1. Preheat the oven to 150C/300F. Line two baking trays with paper. Finely chop the raisins. Sift together the flour and baking powder.
  2. Cream the butter, cream cheese and icing sugar until well blended. Add in egg white and beat until combined. Add in chopped raisins. Mix in the flour mixture.
  3. Shape teaspoonfuls of the dough into balls and place them 2cm apart on the prepared trays. Bake for 30 minutes. Then turn the oven off and leave the cookies in for 20 minutes. Remove and cool on a wire rack. Coat the cookies with extra icing sugar.

Angie...the real danger with cookies like these is that ONE IS NEVER ENOUGH. Don't you realize you're not helping me get into that slinky bathing suit ;0)
This recipe will have to be tucked away in my selective cookie file for later caloric baking ;o)
Great easy recipe...thanks!
Flavourful wishes, Claudia

I am a huge fan of cream cheese, They make the cookies so melt-in-your-mouth delicious. I must try these - I do cookies with ricotta a lot- why not cream cheese? And they are so sweet - to look at as well as taste.
