Easy Low Sugar Cream Cheese Cut Out Cookies
Serves: 24-30
  • 1 cup melted butter (two sticks)
  • 8-ounces softened cream cheese
  • ½ cup raw sugar or sucanat
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3½-4 cups flour (I use freshly ground hard white wheat flour)
  1. Stir together melted butter, softened cream cheese, and sugar.
  2. Add eggs, baking powder, and vanilla.
  3. Stir in flour until well combined. (Use a little less or a little more flour as needed.)
  4. Place dough in the refrigerator for at least two hours.
  5. Once dough is chilled, roll on a well-floured surface and cut out into desired shapes.
  6. Bake in a 350° oven for 10-15 minutes or until cookies are lightly browned. (I prefer mine just barely done so that they stay soft!)
  7. Allow cookies to cool completely before frosting.
